Introduction Safety management applies to the method of using framework, principles, processes, and managing of business activities to help in preventing injuries, accidents and also to minimize other probable risks. The Safety management system (SMS) is the management of safety in a systematic approach that includes organizational structures, policies, procedures, and accountabilities. The safety management system is scalable to mean that it can be tailored to the complexity and the size of the organization. The framework for safety management system that is universally accepted has four main components and some twelve elements; these represent the minimum requirement for any safety management system. The safety objectives and policy includes management responsibility and commitment. Accountabilities on safety, the appointments of key safety personnel to help run and manage the systems, the implementation of the safety management system. It also involves third-party interfaces or the contractors, the coordination of the emergency response planning and the documentation of the safety management system. Another fundamental principle of the safety management system is risk management on safety. This policy involves the ability to positively identify the hazard and being able to mitigate and assess the risk. Safety assurance in safety management systems incorporates: safety performance measurement and monitoring, conducting safety investigations internally, change management, and being able to improve the safety management system continuously (Rodrigues, Cusick, and Wells 2012). Safety promotion is a principle in safety management that deals with the education and training of safety personnel and communications about safety. The International Air Transport 2

Six-Point Safety Strategy This refers to the revised safety strategy made up of six points. It is an all-inclusive approach to the identification of operational, organizational and emerging issues on safety. The six-point plan on security has been established through cooperation with strategic partners through the IATA operations committee and the safety group and the member airlines. This strategy has its focus on six key areas to reduce the operational risk; involves a close working relationship between IATA and the industry stakeholders to alleviate the risks associated with the operation to a level that is acceptable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
