This course will provide you with a foundational knowledge of concepts related to a State Safety Program (SSP), including the core components of an SSP. You will explore common sources of confusion related to the SSP as a management system. This will include detailed instruction on the differences between similar but distinct concepts, including safety management and accident prevention, management systems and safety programs, and compliance-based safety and performance-oriented safety. Finally, so that you develop a practical grasp of the issues underlying the implementation or improvement of the SSP, the course will explain how to integrate the above concepts into a single, coherent structure that meets the requirements set forth by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in Annex 19 – Safety Management.
