Improving business performance through effective safety management
The Third European Safety Management Symposium focuses on the synergies between business performance and safety management.
As organisations work towards attaining fully integrated Safety Management Systems (SMS), this two-day event showcases industry best practice and demonstrates the value of effective risk-based decision making processes across the business. It offers Chief Executives, Finance Directors, Accountable Managers and aviation safety professionals the opportunity to explore how to ensure a continued return on investment that validates SMS as being good for business.
To coincide with the European regulations coming into force in April 2012, the Symposium is the ideal time to consider practical approaches to dealing with the evolving nature of Safety Management, to discuss the impact of the legal imperatives and to promote cooperative dialogue between the regulator and industry.
Hosted by Baines Simmons, the Third European Safety Management Symposium maintains the quality and breadth of previous events by featuring presentations and panel sessions from a variety of civil and military aviation and competent authority professionals and as always, it offers a valuable opportunity to network with industry colleagues.
