Our SMS-MI Tool is a high level self-diagnostic tool to evaluate how well your SMS is performing
The Baines Simmons SMS-MI Tool (SMS-Maturity Index) is an exclusive tool designed to offer you a high level picture of the maturity – and therefore performance levels – of your Safety Management System (SMS).
By focussing on the desired “outcomes” of a successful SMS, our tool allows you to understand where more effort and focus needs to be applied to achieve real SMS success and a greater return on investment.
The Baines Simmons Maturity Index tool therefore helps you look beyond the compliance-based checklist-approach to SMS, focussing instead on the enablers that are needed to drive successful outcomes and added value that an effective and performing safety management system can bring your business.
What will you get after using the SMS-MI Tool?
After using the SMS-MI tool to evaluate your SMS, you will get a detailed review of your SMS development and progress towards effective implementation.

How will SMS-MI assist with your Safety Management System?
The Baines Simmons SMS-MI is an exclusive tool designed by Baines Simmons to offer you a high level measure and calibration of the maturity level of your SMS.
We believe a focus on “the outcomes” of a successful SMS will enable organisations to understand where effort should be applied to achieve real SMS success and an exceptional Return on Investment.
Pure compliance with system requirements or process elements will not necessarily lead to success. A focus on success criteria should enable the identification of not just underperforming elements of the ICAO model, but highlight the true organisational enablers to success. A focus on “SMS Success Outcomes” will enable organisations to realise the true value that an effective SMS should generate beyond the achievement of compliance.
The Baines Simmons Maturity Index therefore focusses beyond the “Compliance based checklist-approach” to SMS, and more progessively towards the “Successful Outcomes” and “Added Value” that effective SMS can bring your business.
