Revised and Expanded SMS Toolkit

Following feedback from operators and a full review by Transport Canada the ATAC SMS Toolkit has been revised and expanded to include increased information on Quality Assurance and the 96 criteria that Transport Canada examines when reviewing an operator for approval of his safety management system.

We have also updated the workflows to reflect changes based both on proposed regulations and lessons learned in the field.
