A self-assessment tool to measure the performance of safety management in your organisation

Why measure organisational safety performance?

You rely on your safety management systems to protect your business. If you don’t know how well these systems are performing, you don’t know if you are protected.

In an activity as critical as managing safety in your organisation, measurement is vital in helping you to drive performance. The knowledge and intelligence offered by measuring performance helps with managing and prioritising a range of activities throughout all levels of an organisation. It assists with:

  • Determining accountability and decision making
  • Focusing direction and planning
  • Allocating safety resources

Welcome to the SMARRT MAP-MI tool

Part of the suite of Baines Simmons’ SMARRT® tools, SMARRT MAP-MI (SMARRT Measurement and Assessment of Performance Maturity Indicator) is an exclusive, high-level, self-assessment tool that helps you to measure and assess your organisation against our SMARRT MAP™ model which we have developed to illustrate the management of safety at an organisational level.

Our SMARRT MAP™ model illustrates our approach to managing organisational safety performance. It is people-and system-centric and focussed on the ‘human in the system’. SMARRT MAP™ comprises four core safety management systems and five key performance enablers.

It will help you to identify your areas of strength as well as assist you to prioritise areas for focus and improvement.

What will you get from a SMARRT MAP-MI assessment?

On completing the self-assessment, you will receive a high level evaluation of your organisation’s safety performance. It will include an explanation of your maturity levels and some considered prompts on how you can progress your systems and enablers to achieve greater levels of performance. You will also see how you benchmark against your peers in the aviation industry.

NOTE: As a self-assessment tool, results shown will be indicative in nature and will vary in its accuracy according to each organisation’s unique circumstances. SMARRT MAP-MI’s purpose is informational and intended to help stimulate thinking on how you can consider maturing safety management performance in your organisation.
