Notes ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ ___________________ Aviation Safety & Security Management Safety Management System (SMS) No other transportation industry has a better safety record than aviation. And yet there is still always a need to improve it further. Technology helped a lot in the recent decades to maintain a more or less constant accident rate while passengers' numbers went up tremendously, but now a need is felt to sharpen the management skills so as to remain ultra-safe in the future. SMS, or Safety Management Systems, is exactly the right tool to achieve safety in aviation. It basically is a process where operators identify the hazards and associated safety-risks that are inherent in their individual operation and then develop appropriate mitigation strategies. SMS has two main purposes. The first is to reduce the safety-risks for passengers, aircraft, personnel or property to a level as low as reasonably practical. The second is to assist managers with their constant dilemma between production and protection: "is it a good idea to make an offer to that customer who wants us to fly around unfamiliar mountainous terrain in marginal weather or should we simply skip this business opportunity?" SMS is not just about investing in the improvement of an already quite impressive safety record. It's also about saving a lot more by managing the daily operations more safely and more effectively using Quality Management principles. Of course there is no "off-the-shelf" or "one-size-fits-all" system, and some fine-tuning is needed in every organization implementing SMS. Advantages of SMS First, it's not new: other major industries have implemented SMS for decades and to revert to the "old days without SMS" is simply unthinkable for them. They gained too much. The best companies in business aviation have also been benefiting from SMS for years, and they won't step back either. Second, from a purely business point of view there's no reason to wait to improve efficiency and reduce safety risks. Implementing an SMS has a cost, but definitely less than smashing a wing-tip in the hangar or less than refusing a flight request because risks were not properly assessed and mitigated (just to take rather "happy-ending" occurrences). Activity Prepare an assignment on safety objectives applicable to the provisions of ATS within airspaces and aerodromes controlled by Airports Authority of India. (c) UPES, Not for Reproduction/ Sale

    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.
