Safety is Every one’s Responsibility

FLL's Safety Management System is an innovative, proactive and systematic approach to managing safety which provides an avenue for communication of safety concerns without fear of retribution. You are the key resource to the success of the SMS. Everyone is encouraged to report any accidents, incidents and hazardous conditions or behaviors as soon as possible. You can contribute to the safety of the airport by utilizing the Anonymous Reporting Program to share important safety information.

SMS Anonymous Re porting Statement

The Broward County Aviation Department (BCAD) is committed to the safest airport operations standards possible. To achieve this, it is imperative that we encourage uninhibited reporting of all incidents, occurrences and hazardous conditions which may compromise the safe conduct of airport operations. To this end, we encourage everyone to communicate any information that may affect the integrity of airport operations. Such communication may be anonymously reported through the FLL's SMS Program:

  • BCAD will facilitate the uninhibited reporting of incidents, occurrences, and conditions by removing any fear of retribution to all personnel at FLL through our SMS Anonymous Reporting System;
  • Our method of collecting, recording, and disseminating information obtained from safety reports has been developed to protect, to the extent permissible by law, the identity of an employee who provides safety information;
  • This policy shall not apply to information received by the organization from a source other than the employee involved in the event, or which involves an illegal act, or a deliberate or willful disregard of promulgated regulations or procedures;

I urge everyone to use the SMS Anonymous Reporting Program to help FLL become a leader in providing our customers and employees with the highest level of safety.
