advent of the safety management system (SMS) has affected all aviation
sectors worldwide, and is now required for most domestic and
international air operations, through either regulatory (14 CFR Parts 5,
119, or 121) or voluntary compliance. It’s easy to be intimidated by
the scope and complexity of SMS, but Practical Safety Management Systems
distills the concepts and principles into a practical working format.
Universities and training organizations will find guidance and resources
to create, implement, and maintain a functioning SMS.

An SMS must be adapted and continuously improved to meet an
organization’s mission while reducing risk to the lowest viable level
for flight departments, independent contractors servicing the aviation
industry, air traffic services, and more. Beyond mere theory, this book
encourages hands-on exercise and practical application of SMS concepts
and principles to varied industry areas such as flight crews,
maintenance, air traffic control, airports, and unmanned aircraft
systems (UAS).

Beginning with an overview and history of SMS, chapters cover SMS
components, costs and development process, approaches to safety culture,
human factors, audits and evaluations, and more. Each chapter concludes
with review questions. Extensive case studies and references are
provided throughout, with additional resources supplied in a “Reader
Resources” webpage. Practical Safety Management Systems is a useful
guide for transforming your safety program into an up-to-date and
beneficial safety management system.
