Safety Management Systems:
Applying the Concepts to Make a Safer Reality

Regardless of whether or not you are affected by forthcoming FAA safety management system (SMS) requirements, you know you need to manage your personal and operational safety. But how do you realistically apply SMS concepts to your unique situations? This year’s five National Safety Forum sessions will discuss how you can effectively address specific issues inside each component of an SMS and the relationship between an SMS and a positive safety culture. Do you have the right policies? How can you address “every day” mental health issues? What data should you collect and how do you use it? Will an SMS really make a difference? Large operators, small operators and industry leaders will share their real-world examples of tackling – and successfully mitigating – common issues with their SMS programs. You’ll walk away with workable ideas and realistic implementation options to make every aspect of your operation safer.

The National Safety Forum will be in conjunction with the 2023 NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition (NBAA-BACE).
