After hundreds of SMS implementations and managing dozens of department programs for more than a decade, we've learned that the most important predictor of success with regard to an effective SMS is team cohesion and team participation. In the right hands, the SMS is a highly effective tool that improves hazard awareness, raises morale and builds ownership. In the wrong hands, the SMS may provide a false sense of security and that can lead to lost opportunities and poor results. If you are interested in getting the most from your SMS & QMS programs, we would love to work with you.

"SMS is all about decision-making. Thus it has to be a decision-maker's tool, not a traditional safety program separate and distinct from business and operational decision making. Safety beings from both the top down and the bottom up. Everyone from the receptionist, ramp worker, pilot, manager, and FAA inspector has a role to perform", (FAA).
