Safety assurance

Safety assurance is the process of monitoring and checking how your SMS is performing. It’s about looking at the things you’ve put in place and the things you’re doing on a daily basis to manage safety to see what’s working well and what isn’t. The information you gather through different safety assurance activities allows you to make changes to your SMS to ensure it continually improves.

The guidance material and templates below will assist you to develop the elements of your SMS relating to the Safety assurance component.
