Welcome To the U.S. Marshals Service,
JPATS' SMS Program!

JPATS is committed to the health and safety of its employees and customers. We are also committed to meet the standards and requirements of a safety management system as defined in the ICAO Safety Management Manual, Doc 9859, IS-BAO, and as required by FMR 102-33 through the Interagency Committee for Aviation Policy (ICAP).

SMS (Safety Management Systems) introduces an evolutionary process in system safety and safety management. SMS is a structured process that obligates us to manage safety with the same level of priority as other core JPATS business processes. JPATS' SMS implementation strategies will focus on:

  • Process safety culture;
  • Compliance with standards, codes, regulations, and laws;
  • Hazard identification and risk analysis;
  • Asset integrity and reliability;
  • Engage management;
  • Measurement and metrics for safety awareness and as a product.
