Here are 2 good presentations, one on Safety Culture, an important element of a vibrant Safety Management System, and another on the "Whys" and "Whats" of a SMS. The article on culture was put out by Curt Lewis and Associates, and the presentation on the "Whys" and "Whats" was created by Rick Clarke, former Director of SMS for ALPA, now working AFS-200 Air Carrier issues as a member of the FAA.

These presntations ar good introductions and converstation starters for an organization, and help establish a good foundational policy upon which a Q/SMS can rest upon. They are also great resources for FAASTeam members.
