The advent of the safety management system (SMS) has affected all aviation sectors worldwide, and is now
for most domestic and international air operations, through either regulatory or voluntary compliance. It’s easy to be intimidated by the scope and complexity of SMS, but this second edition of
Practical Safety Management Systems
distills the concepts and principles into a practical working format. Universities and training organizations will find guidance and resources to create, implement, and maintain a functioning SMS.
Beginning with an overview and history of SMS, chapters cover SMS components, costs and development process, approaches to safety culture, human factors, audits and evaluations, and more. Each chapter concludes with review questions. Extensive case studies and references are provided throughout, with additional resources supplied in a “Reader Resources” webpage.
Softcover, 8-1/4" x 10-3/4", 216 pages, illustrated throughout with full-color graphics. Returns of unused, unsold copies of ASA-SMS will be accepted
from distributors only
through October 31st, 2019.
