Tutorial on Safety Promotion
High-performing organizations recognize that a Safety Management System (SMS) can provide tremendous safety benefit, but only IF all four components are present, operational and EFFECTIVE. None drive to culture more than Component 4 – Safety Promotion, an organization’s commitment to investing in its personnel and communicating safety information. The 2021 edition of the FTSW Tutorial will take a close look at what comprises industry standards for SMS Safety Promotion and further, what are the recommended practices that would enable an effective program for flight test organizations.
