Free Online Safety Management System (SMS)Training by Aviation Safety India

Dear Sir/Madam,

Greetings from Aviation Safety Management Society of India (ASMSI).

Aviation Safety Management Society of India is an All India Registered, Not for Profit Society dedicated for promotion of Aviation and Aviation Safety in the Country. ASMSI is fortunate to have a vast pool of highly accomplished Aviation Professionals of repute as its distinguished Members. ASMSI has been working relentlessly to enhance the Aviation Safety environments in the country through spread of knowledge and awareness.

Safety Management System is a very effective and proven management system to identify hazards in a proactive manner and to ensure that hazards do not turn into accidents, incidents, through timely elimination of hazards.

SMS was introduced in India for the first time on 20 Jul 10 by DGCA through the issue of a CAR. Since then DGCA has been making concerted efforts to ensure that the SMS is implemented in letter and spirit. In some recent audits by DGCA, it was observed that the implementation of SMS is lacking on many fronts and it is not being taken seriously by most of the Operators. The lack of proper implementation of SMS was also highlighted by the Honorable Minister of Civil Aviation during his briefing to the lawmakers in Parliament.

The Scope of SMS includes all the personnel of the operator right from the CEO downwards to lowest level including employees from Finance, HR, Admin and marketing etc. Every employee of the Company should be sensitized to the concept of Safety Management System commensurate with their role and responsibilities. Hence, everyone in an Aviation Company should be trained on SMS.

Most of the Operators have no choice but to train their employees i.e. Pilots, Cabin Crew, Accountable Executives/Managers, Chief, Deputy  Chief of Flight Safety and Safety Manager etc. on SMS as mandated by DGCA. Other employees of the Company obviously remain ignorant about the SMS in absence of any training.

The Management of the Aviation Organisations should appreciate that SMS is a very useful system to promote safety and hence, it would serve the interest of the Company towards maintenance of a safe operating environment. It needs to be remembered that Accidents are bad for business and reputation and can impact very heavily on the finances and survivability of a Company.

Keeping in mind the importance of SMS towards safety and the reluctance of the Operators to get the SMS training done for all their personnel due to financial considerations, ASMSI has decided to conduct Online  SMS training of all the personnel of a Company free of cost.

Safety Management System is not only essential for Aviation Industry but also equally important for all other enterprises. ASMSI will be happy to conduct free SMS training whoever wishes to benefit from this training across the country. Our mission is to spread the message of Safety to make India even Greater.

Kindly do not hesitate and feel free to avail this opportunity to get all your personnel trained on SMS, without incurring any expenditure. Training of all your personnel on SMS will go a long way in enhancing safety of your operations and promoting safety culture in your Organisation.

Please Remember that Knowledge and Awareness are Key to Safety.

Thanking you

With warm Regards
