A safety management system (SMS) is an integral part of a quality management system (QMS), although it may also considered as being separate and sitting along-side the QMS. A SMS is a structured approach to health and safety (H&S) management. It is not however a legal requirement but is recommended by the HSE as an appropriate means for ensuring satisfactory management of H&S. In essence, an SMS defines the organisation's structure (from CEO down), responsibilities, procedural arrangements and competency arrangements for controlling H&S risk and improving H&S performance. The procedural arrangements must specify how the HASWA and supporting regulations are enacted. All parties contributing to power network construction, i.e. power network companies' consultants, contractors and manufacturers, should have their own SMS. The paper provides an overview of a typical SMS and how the construction design and management (CDM) regulations in particular are incorporated within it.
