Air Traffic Organization: Safety Management System Manual

In support of the effort to provide a safer National Airspace System (NAS) using the Safety Management System (SMS), this manual describes the Air Traffic Safety Oversight Service (AOV) safety requirements and responds to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) safety process requirements for the Air Traffic Organization (ATO). The manual also provides guidance, processes, and tools to ATO personnel for managing the safety of the NAS, building on existing ATO safety management capabilities. This manual was created to provide specific operational process information to support the daily activities of ATO employees. It describes the functions, components, and principles of the SMS and provides the guidance to apply them effectively. ATO Order JO 1000.37, Air Traffic Organization Safety Management System, requires the use of the current version of the ATO SMS Manual and the safety standards defined in it.
