I started SMS4Aviation after a 25 year aviation career flying as a flight crewmember for a part 121 airline and a fortune 500 corporation, that provided me lots of interesting experience and international travel, with the added perk of getting to use my A&P license on occasion. For the past 13 years, I have worked with customers develop, implement and manage their SMS programs.
Safety Management Systems (ICAO, FAA, OHSAS)
Airport SMS Implementation Plans
IS-BAO support Programs
IS-BAO stage audits
Managed SMS & ISBAO programs
Independent Aviation Safety Evaluations (IASE)
Safety training programs
SMS initial and recurrent training
While I understand that the SMS is a very effective tool when properly managed, I also know that it has proven to be ineffective in many departments, usually due to staffing constraints and a general lack of understanding of what it can do. That is where I think I can really make a difference in your operation. I believe in training and that is where I spend much of my time with new departments. If you are focused on being the best department you can be, I would like to talk to you. Call me anytime.
