In the last 9 of October, there was an instruction session directed to the top managers of the Company, in the field of SMS – Safety Management System.
This initiative started from the Safety & Security Management Direction itself, that considered this moment a suitable one to involve the management teams in the commitment and continuation of the effective implementation of SMS, since there were recent changes in TAP.
In this session, there were present the responsible from various areas of the Company, such as Flight Operations, Marketing and Communication, CCO, Maintenance and Engineering and Safety, beside others, including the CEO himself, Fernando Pinto.
According to Commandant Gonçalo Nápoles, Director of this area, “a culture of positive Safety is essential, based on the understanding and commitment of everyone with the system”. He considers that “each one has their responsibility quota to contribute for an effective SMS, through our actions and decisions on the daily basis, whatever function we perform at TAP” and, in this sense, “the bigger the recognition and the exposure our acts and decisions have, the bigger the impact we have to the Safety culture will be”.
