Swedish CAA sets safety standards with Baines Simmons

Baines Simmons has recently been chosen as the provider of Safety Management Systems (SMS) training by the Swedish Civil Aviation Authority (SCAA).

Based on work undertaken for the Air Accident Investigation Branch of the UK’s Ministry of Transport, new material on advanced SMS is currently being developed to meet the Swedish CAA’s Regulators requirements. Baines Simmons has extensive experience of working in similar areas with other regulators, including the UK CAA and EASA. The training will roll out from May 2011 and is to be delivered over a period of several months.

The Swedish CAA has a history of taking a proactive approach towards achieving optimum levels of understanding of SMS with its 100 regulators. The training with experts in SMS from Baines Simmons will serve to reinforce the authority’s position. It will help the regulators to increase their understanding of the criteria they need to examine and then determine the effectiveness of the SMS of a regulated business.

“The Swedish CAA is an organisation that clearly aims to provide the highest quality to the industry it serves, and we look forward to engaging in in-depth exploration of the role of safety culture with them. We will leave its regulators confident in their understanding of the performance and effectiveness of SMS,” states Chris Drew, business development manager at Baines Simmons. “We believe our wealth of experience working with regulators positions us as second to none – this cooperation is yet more evidence of Baines Simmons’ position as a world-class provider of aviation safety solutions.”

Baines Simmons is recognised as an international market leader in aviation safety training, operating as a trusted partner with more than 350 of the world’s leading civil and military aviation organisations. The company has well-established links with more than 30 regulators worldwide, including the UK CAA, the Ministry of Defence and it is currently the single largest supplier of safety and error management training to EASA.
