Safety Risk Management Component of Four Pillars of Aviation Safety Management

World-wide Civil Aviation Authorities structure aviation SMS requirements around ICAO's document 9859. ICAO Document 9859 has strongly influenced regulatory authorities to develop nation-wide SMS frameworks based on the following four components or "pillars":

  1. Safety Policy
  2. Safety Risk Management
  3. Safety Assurance
  4. Safety Promotion

Quality aviation SMS database software programs of the best caliber follow these four well-known pillars. Quality safety management system databases must strive to provide tools to save safety managers time and money. Whether your aviation hazard database starts with a simple hazard reporting tool, or a very sophisticated aviation risk assessment database program, you still need to ensure your program addresses these four pillars.
