In accordance with International and Domestic mandates, Safety Management Systems (SMS) are being developed and implemented by many domestic and international airports. These systems provide a top‐down, business‐like approach to managing safety risk. The implementation of these programs is difficult due to the many different organizational structures and regulatory requirements of airports. The implementation of SMS at small airports will affect airport personnel in many ways. This research effort investigates an airport’s intentions of implementing SMS and the effects to the organization’s personnel.
