Safety Management System – SMS
Our goal is to achieve the highest safety standards in our air operations. The Security Management System (SSM) Safety Management System-SMS), defined as a systemic approach to safety management, taking into account the necessary organizational structure, responsibility assignment, policy and procedures.
SMS is characterized by an active search for threats, an assessment of the likelihood of their occurrence and the consequences they can cause, in order to control them through a number of preventive measures. The system is based on a safety management formula, focused on the prevention of aviation incidents, by collecting information and data on potential risks from different sources, and then analysing them and taking preventive and/or corrective action appropriate to the results of the analyses obtained. Such a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to ensuring the safety of air operations enables effective and effective prevention of air accidents. The purpose of sms is to ensure security, understood as a condition in which the risk of harm to a person or property is reduced to an acceptable level, is below such a level and is maintained at or below such an acceptable level through an ongoing process of hazard identification and risk management.
According to “Safety Management Manual” (ICAO Doc 9859)
The planning and implementation of sms is a process that requires the involvement of all persons performing any activities at the airport that may affect security. According to the Safety Management Manual (ICAO Doc 9859), sms is followed by a road consisting of:
- involvement of executives,
- identification of hazards,
- risk assessment.
- ensuring the ability to carry out research in the field of security,
- ensuring the ability to carry out security analyses,
- promoting security and creating a Team Security Culture,
- documentation supervision and information management,
- continuous security surveillance and monitoring.
