Safety Risk Management

The Safety Risk Management process is an essential part of the Management System, enabling effective identification of hazards, risk probability and severity assessment, and the implementation and monitoring of risk reduction measures.

New approach

ICAO introduced harmonised requirements for Safety Management Systems (SMS) implementation by aviation service providers in 2009.  Since then, aircraft operators and aviation service providers have been mandated to apply risk management processes within their organisational Management Systems.

Effective Safety Risk Management addresses the causes of potential incidents, accidents and occurrences before they occur. This creates value by avoiding harm to people, assets, environment and business performance.

A performance-based Risk Management System will help organisations to:

  • Enhance Management System function and business performance
  • Increase the identification of hazards and threats
  • Accurately assess risk likelihood and severity
  • Efficiently allocate resources for risk treatment
  • Encourage proactive management and control of safety-critical activities
  • Identify and treat emergent risks throughout the organisation
  • Increase operational effectiveness and efficiency
  • Minimise losses and harms
  • Improve organisational learning from reports and occurrences
  • Produce data to improve decision making and resource planning
  • Improve incident management should an event occur
  • Strengthen organisational resilience and stakeholder confidence
