Air Carriers helped develop the first commercial iteration of WBAT in 2004. Now, the FAA is requiring all Part 121 air carriers to develop and implement a Safety Management System (SMS) by the first quarter of 2018. In response, WBAT maintains its long-standing relationship with the FAA to ensure our SMS modules are fully compliant with 14 CFR part 5 language.

In February 2017, the WBAT team met with AFS-900 personnel to review and accept the recent changes made to the Safety Risk Management (SRM) module within the platform.

Implementing SMS

The WBAT platform offers a robust SMS Implementation Manager (SMS IM). This allows your organization to perform a preliminary or detailed gap analysis across operational departments. The SMS IM module is tailored with specific 14 CFR part 5 references and FAA levels of compliance. Determine your organization’s level of compliance and document it all on the WBAT platform, with no need for additional programs.

Schedule Meetings

After documenting your part 5 levels of compliance, schedule a meeting using the WBAT platform and add the requirements you wish to discuss with the FAA. Using the WBAT meeting feature minimizes in-person documentation review. Send your FAA inspector web-based packages documented in WBAT and allow them to view it before in-person validation.
