A safety management system (SMS) is a core element of an organization that effectively protects the health and safety of its workers. An SMS holds management accountable for managing safety through defining roles and responsibilities, developing proactive performance measures, goal setting, and engaging workers in meaningful safety activities. It is a comprehensive safety and health system that is proactive and preventive in nature. This session will describe the key elements of a successful SMS, supporting the ideas with relevant research and real world examples.
