HTML SMS Tool

According to the obligatory specifications (SARPS) of ICAO Annex 14 Vol. 1 (Aerodrome Design and Operations) and ICAO Doc 9859, airport contractors have to integrate a safety management system (SMS). This topic was further discussed within the EASA requirements (regulation (EU) 139/2014). Since 2006, GfL has been offering the HTML SMS tool, a safety management software, to provide support for airport operators with the management system. Among GfL’s clients are the airports of Düsseldorf, Hannover, Leipzig/Halle and Dresden.

The tool is based on a HTML (PHP) browser application which can be installed in the intranet or a dedicated part of the network of the client’s web server. The storage of the data occurs in a separated database (perferably SQL database format). Usability improvements, an expanded organisation-specific airport safety report, the support of mobile devices and the support of the latest PHP Version (>5.6) were implemented in the current 4.0 version. The monthy and annual airport safety report provides a focused overview of safety relevant information as a status report of the SMS.

The system has a modular design and contains the following modules:

  • Process: Tree-structured illustration of all processes including responsibilities, links to the relevant documents and risk evaluation
  • Document management: central storage and linking of all relevant document
  • Notifications: illustration of company-specific notifications such as reports of damages and incidents, construction notification, runway incursion, wake turbulence incidents and more, including safety evaluation
  • Auditing: Illustration of auditing of the processes including annual audit plans and list of questions
  • Reports/Statistics: Analysis and illustration of all safety-relevant information such as the airport safety report, safety performance indicators and statistics
