Sydney Metro Airport works in partnership with the airport stakeholders to enhance aviation safety, in particular to identify risks associated with airside activities, and to support the effective implementation of a holistic aviation safety outcome.

This is predominately achieved through the Bankstown Airport Safety Management System Committee (BASMSC) which is made up from aviation stakeholder’s and has a mission to shape and implement a safety culture throughout the airport

In support of the BASMCS, Bankstown Airport Limited has developed several safety oriented procedures, rules and guidelines to help the airport achieve the highest levels of standard with the context of the airport environment.

These include:

These systems are the core safety requirements which are supported by a raft of internal procedures all of which support the Sydney Metro Airports approach to safety.
