Federal Transit Administration

Safety and Security Management Plans (SSMPs)

  • Required for major capital projects, as defined in 49 CFR Part 633.5, as a component of the Project Management Plan (PMP)

  • Written by recipients of federal financial assistance to describe how safety and security will be addressed in their major capital projects

  • Must cover initial project planning through initiation of revenue service

  • Must be developed and submitted to FTA for review and approval

  • FTA approval of SSMP must be received prior the recipient receiving approval to enter the next project phase


Why are ssmps necessary

    • C, Occasional - Likely to occur some time in the life of an item, with a probability of occurrence less than 10-2 but greater than 10-3 in that life. Will occur several times in the life of the fleet.

    • D, Remote - Unlikely but possible to occur in the life of an item, with a probability of occurrence less than 10-3 but greater than 10-6 in that life. Unlikely, but can reasonably be expected to occur in the fleet.

    • E, Unlikely - So unlikely to occur in the lifetime of an item, it can be assumed occurrence will not be experienced, with a probability of occurrence less than 10-6 in that life. Unlikely to occur in the fleet, but possible
