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.

    Safety Management System (SMS)

Mission First, Safety Always! Safety is one of SAAA's top priorities across all aspects of the planning, building, maintenance and operation of SAAA Member owned and operated aircraft

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 (OMS)
  • Risk Radar (RRAv)
  • Human factor education and awareness
  • Safety Promotion
