Four Components to SMS

An effective safety management system includes four components to successfully develop, manage, and evolve safety.

  1. Safety Policy – Provides the framework for safety.  Establishes management commitment, identifies key players, roles and responsibilities. Establishes the target and acceptable levels of safety.
  2. Safety Risk Management – Documents the identification, assessment and mitigation of safety hazards. Documents the acceptance of risk associated with a change.
  3. Safety Assurance – Collects and evaluates safety data to continuously monitor the effectiveness of safety risk mitigations and identify new hazards..
