Safety Management System (SMS)

Safety is SAAA’s Number 1 priority.

We have a framework and systems to help keep us all safe

The SAAA safety program is drawn together under our Safety Management System (SMS). In practical terms, this offers an Occurrence Management System (OMS) that allows sharing and learning about accidents, incidents and defects; Risk Radar (RRAv) which is a life of project and pilot risk assessment system; and our Member Support Program (MSP) which provides for assisting members to improve safety outcomes through guidance and learning through building to flying operations.

The SAAA SMS is designed to maintain a culture of safety awareness through practices, systems, engagement and feedback that delivers best practice or better safety outcomes.

At its heart are the “four pillars” of our safety risk management being:

        • Occurrence Management System (reveal with hover; click to go to link)
