“Any time aviation safety is recognized, we all win,” said David Deveau, Vice President of Safety, Quality and Environment at Jazz Aviation, which received top honors at the international 2012 European Safety Management Symposium on Tuesday evening, May 15, in London, reports The Sacramento Bee.
Jazz bested a list of seven finalists from individuals, teams, and organizations from around the world to win the first Innovation in Aviation Safety Management Award.
The judges attributed Jazz’s success to integrating several existing systems into one safety and business management system. "The Jazz entry stood out for its evidence of integrating SMS [Safety Management Systems] across aviation safety, quality, health and safety, and business."
The European Safety Management Symposium provides an opportunity for the aviation industry leaders and safety professionals to share best practices in working toward achieving the highest standards of aviation safety.
The purpose of the award is to recognize an innovative approach to the application of aviation safety management systems and improved business performance.
With its roots going back to the 1930s and continuing to generate some of the strongest operational results in the North American aviation industry, Jazz currently operates scheduled passenger service with more than 790 departures per weekday to 84 destinations in Canada and in the United States.

When many people think of surgeons committing medical malpractice, they think of mistakes made during major operations like open-heart surgery, joint replacement, and organ transplantation.
