What Is Safety Performance Monitoring and Measurement
Safety performance monitoring is an essential component of aviation safety management systems (SMS). And by “essential,” performance monitoring is like your SMS implementation's immune system.
When performance monitoring is not handled well, your safety program will wither. Worse yet, your operating certificate may be in jeopardy.
Do you know what performance monitoring looks like?
SMS performance monitoring basically involves ongoing (real-time) collection of safety data metrics that indicate the health and progress of an aviation SMS implementation. It is also used to ensure that key safety goals are achieved.
Safety performance monitoring and measurement is an element of the Safety Assurance Component of the Four Pillars of SMS.
