SMS Packages

Safety Management System Implementation:

Initial scoping meeting

to discuss and understand your requirements. This would also assess your safety management system maturity and agree the level of support necessary to deliver an effective safety management system.

Facilitated SMS workshop

for selected staff that will include: an introduction to safety management, a practical understanding of risk management, development of a system description, identification of an initial risk picture of the organisation and establishment of initial safety objectives.

Facilitation of the initial safety committee meeting

this would help you establish an effective safety meeting.

CAA Phase 1 SMS evaluation preparation

We would carry out a Phase 1 SMS evaluation to meet CAA standards to provide you with feedback on any outstanding deficiencies and enable completion of the Phase 1 evaluation report and implementation plan, ready for submission to the CAA.

CAA Phase 2 SMS evaluation preparation

We would carry out a Phase 2 SMS evaluation to meet CAA standards to provide you with feedback on any outstanding deficiencies and enable completion of the Phase 2 evaluation report, ready for submission to the CAA.


This package will be tailored to your requirements and your timescales. This would normally require five visits based on a single site operation. This would be modified as required based on the size, nature and complexity of your organisation and activities.

  This package can be supplemented by a series of additional support activities as follows:

  • Initial assessment of your operation looking at your quality management system, any existing safety management system activities

  • Additional support and guidance
  • Attendance at CAA evaluations

  • Additional training, including human factors
  • Assistance in developing safety performance indicators
  • Training needs analysis template and assistance in completion
  • Root cause analysis workshop
  • Support to assist rectification of CAA SMS evaluation deficiencies

Safety Management System Reassessment

We can provide an on-site visit to further assess the effectiveness of your safety management system following Phase 2 implementation. This will include a written report detailing our observations, identification of potential regulatory shortfalls and recommended actions to further improve your system.

Safety Management System Training

We will assess your training needs and facilities and develop an appropriate training needs analysis. This will enable us to prepare a bespoke training course, based around the specific needs of your organisation and the maturity of your safety management system. This will allow us to provide a customised training package.
