The Brazilian Air Force Hazard Report Program has not been significantly changed since its creation, but the rise of Safety Management System has introduced several new concepts to aviation, resulting in important improvements to safety. The purpose of this study was to verify the need for a revision of the Hazard Report Program and the applicability of Safety Management System concepts in this review. A quantitative-descriptive research was proposed, and a survey instrument was designed to assess the perceptions of the Brazilian Air Force safety specialists. The results determined the applicability of Safety Management System concepts to revise the Hazard Report Program. The overall acceptance of these concepts indicated their usefulness to improve reporting systems and the aviation safety.
