  2. 2. MOTIVATIONIf we are able to better identify the conspiracy events that would lead to disasters/accidents, we will be in abetter position to prevent many accidents from occurring. On the other hand, perfect safety is rare becausealmost every activity has dangers. Accidents can, and do happen. The crucial question will be whetherthere was a failure of management to provide for safety. Fulfilling our legal and ethical obligations requiresthat safety risks be identified, quantified and managed accordingly. In terms of liability, all companies willhave to look very carefully at their Safety Management Systems.What is needed is a far more rigorous approach to safety, which:a. Provides logical arguments with supporting evidenceb. Has clearly defined objectives, strategies, assumptions and justificationsDesigns likely to mature within the next decade will involve even more critical use of complex systems,many of which will apply:• Digital techniques to achieve the complex functions envisaged• System integration (including inter-reactions and inter-dependability)• Redundancy and reconfiguration capabilitiesDemonstrating the accomplishment of safety requirements is likely to be a formidable task. The challengehowever, is whether System and Safety Engineers will be better prepared with the required safety approaches,tools, techniques and with the appropriate insights into when and how they should be applied! A revisedrelationship between management and safety is the most important avenue to explore. This relationshipbetween complexity and control is what lies at the heart of the problem of System Safety EngineeringManagement. It is of pragmatic, professional and academic importance. We need some way of measuringsafety and an ability to ensure that we arrive at the necessary safety parameters. It is implicit, therefore,that all reasonably foreseeable hazards have to be identified systematically (throughout the product life-cycle, not only during development) and the risk assessed before a judgement can be made upon theiracceptability. In order to do this we have to understand the issues that influence safety and the means bywhich they are identified and managed. Only then can we judge the acceptability of any threats associatedwith the initial and continued use of a particular product. OVERVIEW & BENEFITSThis two day intensive master class will focus on the critical aspects of System Safety Engineering andSystem Management Safety. Our expert facilitator and presenters will provide insight into the key deliveryareas of System Safety Engineering, development and maintenance of Safety Case; IEC functional safetystandards and hazard identification, analysis and risk reduction amongst other focus topics.

  5. 5. COURSE AGENDA DAY 2Safety Management System (SMS)The SMS approach reflects the general trend in safety regulation to evolve towards a performance-based approach,in other words, specifying what a desired outcome should be and not prescribing in detail how to do it. What aSMS does is to provide a framework for an organisation to take responsibility of their own activities, rather than relypurely on compliance with ever more detailed, prescriptive safety regulations. This practical workshop will focuson the issues, challenges and process required to implement an effective Safety Management System (SMS). Whilefrequent reference maybe made to the aviation industry, the principles and approaches discussed are applicable toall industries.Session OneIntroduction to Safety Management System• What do we understand the term “safety”• Civil Aviation Accident rates and causes• The revised relationship between “Management” and “Safety”• Why do we need Safety management system?• Defining “Managing Safety”Session TwoSMS Regulatory Requirements• International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICOA) Requirements• Legal requirements under Health & Safety Act.Session ThreeWhat is System Management Safety?• System Management Safety in Perspective• Key Elements• SMS and Information Management• 8 SMS Building blocksSession FourSafety Culture• Culture of the organisation• Error and Behaviour Management• Establishing a Fair and Just CultureSession FiveRisk Management applied to System Management Safety• Defining risk• Risk Criteria typically used• Approaches to Risk Management• Accident sequences and control• Probability and Severity considerations• ALARP and Risk ownershipSession SixHazard Identification• Sources of hazards• Effective hazard assessment and reporting• Effective hazard analysis techniques• The Hazard RegisterSession SevenImplementing System Management Safety (SMS)• The SMS toolbox• The SMS Implementation Plan• Organisational Requirements• Management System Integration• Key Performance Indicators for an effective SMSCase Study - Relevant Case Study to reinforce learning.General Discussion & Feedback
