Aviation Safety Management Systems (SMS)

Safety Management System (SMS) is becoming a standard throughout the aviation industry worldwide. It is recognized by the Joint Planning and Development Office (JPDO), International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA) and product/service providers as the next step in the evolution of safety in aviation.

SMS is the formal, top-down business approach to managing safety risk, which includes a system approach to managing safety, the necessary organizational structures, accountabilities, policies and procedures.

As the leading disaster management company in the world, Kenyon has learned over the years that providing a comprehensive SMS business approach compliments the work that Kenyon does in disaster management.

Kenyon has partnered with global leading aviation consulting firms that specialize in Safety Management Systems. These firms believe that SMS is a fundamental prerequisite of air carrier responsibility in order to conduct safe operations. Regulators and passengers expect this area of organization management to be of utmost importance to the company. Having the right tools and techniques is fundamental to effective management of safety in any organization.

Kenyon along with our partners can provide the following:

  • Develop a comprehensive Safety Management System for your airline, review existing SMS and/or develop an SMS within established and start-up operations.

  • Full support and training to establish an air safety management program for new and existing operators, including safety reporting and report management, flight data management and analysis, risk analysis and risk management.
