This course introduces safety performance monitoring as the core activity within the safety assurance (SA) process of an airline safety management system (SMS) and provides a methodology to develop SPIs that meet the expectations of IOSA Standards and Recommended Practices (ISARPs) and ICAO Annex 19.
