Our goal is to provide participants with an overview and basic understanding of the elements of a Safety Management System (SMS) as it applies to the air transportation industry. Further, we will demonstrate specific steps, that if implemented will result in significant risk and injury reduction to the participants crew members.
The air transportation industry was mandated to implement SMS systems as a result of poor safety performance, and since these systems have been put into place we as an industry, and jetBlue specifically has realized tremendous gains in proactively reducing and managing risk. This program is intended to show how we achieved these benchmarks and give participants some takeaways to use in their own communities.
