Safety management System (SMS)

Safety Management System (SMS) is a safety system that relies on involvement and commitment from the Top Airport Management; therefore it is important that the senior managers within the airport be identified as key participants.

  • One of the key features of an effective SMS is to hold each person, regardless of his or her position, responsible for safety performance.
  • In the San Antonio Airport System (SAAS) the Aviation Director is the highest ranking official, there is the Accountable Executive.
  • The Aviation Director ultimately assumes full responsibility for the SAAS SMS, he can delegate the day-to-day operational responsibilities for SMS to Assistant Aviation Director - Operations
