Risk Assessment Training (RAT)

Risk Management

A safety management system (SMS) is a systematic, explicit and comprehensive process for managing safety risks. As with all management systems, an SMS provides for goal setting, planning, and measuring performance.

Decades of research has shown that between 70 to 90 percent of accidents and incidents can be traced to some form of human error; with some arguing 100 percent when viewed systematically. The notion of an “Organisational Accident” proposed by Professor James Reason illustrates that errors can occur at the management level – in the development of policy and procedures – in the same way that errors can occur on the flight deck, the ramp, the hangar or the shop floor.

A successful business needs to be operated safely, not only to meet legal requirements and social responsibilities but also to be profitable. Accidents and incidents threaten all of these. An SMS can help you identify, classify and manage risks to the safety of your operation.  An SMS also provides an explicit and comprehensive framework on which to manage risks and build a sound business.

As with all management systems, an SMS involves goal setting, planning, documentation, and the measuring of performance against goals.
