Safety Management course objective is to introduce remote pilots to a management system and culture that is at the heart of the traditional aviation industry and explain the four pillars of a safety management system to include safety policy, safety risk management, safety assurance, and safety promotion. Additionally, this course will explore, through exercises and readings, the process for incorporating these principles into a small UAS flight service company.

Here is the course outline:

1. (Unit 14) An Introduction to Aviation Safety

This unit will introduce the learner to the concepts of aviation safety. Aviation safety is borne out of a long history of tragedy and disaster. Agencies like the Federal Aviation Administration, National Transportation Safety Board, the National Aeronautics and Space Agency, and the International Civil Aviation Organization, have consolidated the lessons learned from these disasters to create a safety management structure that will help improved UAS operations. This management structure known as SMS has four distinct parts. This unit will explore the first part known as safety policy and illustrate the steps required to implement a working SMS.

2. (Unit 15) Safety Risk Management

UAS operations are often unique, new mission sets, new locations, and new aircraft. UAS companies will need to dedicate sufficient resources to Safety Risk Management (SRM), prior to starting any new operation. SRM is a distinct process of identifying hazards, assessing risk, analyzing risk, and controlling risk. This unit will explore these topics and provide remote pilots with an understanding of both deliberate and time critical risk analysis tools.

3. (Unit 16) Safety Assurance

As the UAS industry matures, companies will be looking to increase efficacy and safety. Safety Assurance is a monitoring and feedback system to provide actionable information to the organization’s management team. This unit will introduce remote pilots to the behind the scenes data collection activities that enable the assessment of the effectiveness of safety risk controls put in place. By understanding the safety assurance process, remote pilots will be able to help inform their company’s decisions and improve their own safety records.

4. (Unit 17) Safety Promotion

The goal of all safety programs is a vibrant and positive safety culture. This last unit in the Small UAS Safety series is dedicated to understanding how companies promote safety within the organization. Learners will explore strategies to include; safety communications, training and education programs.
