Safety Management Systems
The Boca Raton Airport is committed to ensuring our staff, tenants and other business partners can operate in a safe environment. Our entire organization is accountable for delivering the highest level of safety assurance and performance. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) mandates a Safety Management System (SMS) at all commercial service (Part 139) airports. Although the Boca Raton Airport is not mandated to implement an SMS program at this time, we acknowledge the many benefits safety management will provide and have implemented an SMS program. SMS is a program for promoting safety and reducing risk to employees and is comprised of four components – safety policy, safety risk management, safety assurance and safety promotion. The use of a SMS helps the Airport identify and mitigate hazards as well as ensures continuous awareness and monitoring of safety.
