Aviation SMS Training Needs Analysis

  • SMS Training

    Each company is different.

  • Each company has a unique safety culture, such as:

    • Non-existent;
    • We care about safety only if somebody is watching; or
    • Safety is embraced across the entire organization.

    In addition to safety culture, not every aviation service provider has a mature safety management system (SMS). You may be at Phase 1, while other operators may already be at Phase 3 or Phase 4.

    Your SMS training needs will be dependent on your safety culture and your SMS implementation phase. When you begin to consider SMS training for employees or managers, we suggest that you define your objectives. Are you seeking to:

    • Improve employee safety knowledge;
    • Hazard identification skills;
    • Modify employee attitudes toward safety; or
    • Educate managers to ensure they understand regulatory requirements?

    Definining your ultimate SMS training goals and objectives will ensure you are finding the correct SMS training company to satisfy your needs.
