Omaha, NE (PRWEB) June 25, 2010
SilverStone Group's Aviation Risk Services Team has been successfully implementing Safety Management Systems (SMS) for their clients since 2007. SMS is a major component of the new International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) regulations which go into effect in November of 2010. The SMS requirement enforced with the new International regulation is more than a good business practice, it ensures safe standards. As stated in their Fall 2007 SilverLink article, these regulations are "More than Rules." International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) has identified the following benefits for air service providers: self-education, assisting with rapid growth, reduce potential for repeat errors, heightened board confidence, assurance to employees and pride in achievement.
SilverStone Group was the first, and remains the only, full-service, resource management organization that provides SMS implementation support as a value-added service for their aviation clients. SilverStone Group's success with this service is recognition of the "real value" of a comprehensive Safety Management System as seen by former Navy Lieutenant Shane Osborn's exposure to this practice as an aircraft commander.
FAA's Administrator Randy Babbitt reaffirms SilverStone Group's message regarding the importance of aviation safety. Their Aviation Risk Services Team has been an advocate of SMS for several years and has authored numerous articles on this topic for our SilverLink magazine.
