Description

Safety Management Systems and their Origins: Insights from the Aviation Industry presents different perspectives on SMS to better decode what it means as a safety approach and what it implicitly conveys beyond safety.

The book uses the aviation industry as a basis for analyzing where the SMS stands in terms of safety enhancement. Through a socio-historical analysis of how SMSs emerged and spread across high-risk industries and countries, the book also explains the other stakes underpinning this new approach to safety management.

Features:

    • Explores SMS as it is implemented in aviation based on examples from several countries and regions, namely the UK, USA, and Australia.
    • Presents a socio-historical analysis of how SMSs emerged in high-risk industries.
    • Provides insights to explain the existing limitations of SMS.
    • Proposes new avenues to reach beyond the limitations of SMS.
    • Discusses the COVID-19 pandemic within the framework of risk analysis.

    The book is intended for safety professionals and regulators, as well as graduate students and researchers in safety science and engineering.
