Towards a new tool for measuring Safety Management Systems performance

Abstract : This paper deals with the assessment of Safety Management Systems performance and presents a new tool developed for that purpose. It recognizes two dimensions in a SMS: a structural facet corresponding to the formal description of the system and an operational one focused on the system's influence on the working environment and practices of people. Building up the operational performance of a SMS actually strengthens the overall resilience of the organization. Authors of the paper believes that the operational performance of SMS can be measured using Tripod Delta. This method is actually designed to detect weak areas in the environment in which people are working and the level of control that the organization has on it. The method and its interesting model of organizational resilience are presented in the paper. In the framework of this paper, Tripod is used as an input to measure the SMS operational performance. Both of the tools designed to measure the structural and operational performances of Safety Management Systems are then described.
