A safety culture in any industry is made up of ever-evolving factors. Regulatory compliance standards will change to better accommodate the current atmosphere, inner-company workings will force new processes, even communication standards within a department can lead to a shift in safety culture. But as these factors remain fluid, the need for a strong safety culture does not. The question is: as processes and circumstance change, are you making sure your culture remains strong?
A large part of aviation safety relies on an effective Safety Management System (SMS). According to the FAA, SMS “integrates modern safety risk management and safety assurance concepts into repeatable, proactive systems. (It) emphasizes safety management as a fundamental business process to be considered in the same manner as other aspects of business management.”
An enduring SMS must have the ability to evolve with your processes, and provide consistent support for your overall safety culture. Features such as employee communication tools, custom options that grow with your company and data sharing opportunities. These features should make your SMS invaluable to an employee’s work day, strengthening their commitment to voluntary reporting and your overall safety culture.
The WBAT platform supports all four components of SMS. WBAT Safety’s mission is simple: provide the people, technology, and processes to improve your safety culture.
