Safety PolicyDefine Roles, Responsibilities, and Relationships outlined in policies and procedures
Aviation safety and risk management systems must define policies, procedures, and organizational structures to accomplish goals that ensure continued safety. Safety Policy requirements define Roles, Responsibilities, and Relationships that are outlined in policies and procedures. Policies must be translated into procedures and organizational controls must be implemented ensuring these policies are practiced and enforced. In short, aviation service providers develop, document, and maintain procedures to carry out safety policies and objectives.
