This book deals with the present and future situation with Quality and Safety management Systems (QMS and SMS). It presents new ideas, points to the basic misunderstandings in the two management systems, and covers a wide range of industries, as well as providing a practical assessment of scientific theory. It explains the fundamental misunderstanding of what Quality and Safety is from a practical point of view and how to improve them by integrating the two systems from the perspective that Quality-I is Safety-II.

"Sasho Andonov’s book, Quality-I is Safety-II – The Integration of Two Management Systems is a fascinating and important read in our complicated time in which the writer gives a very clear picture to unveil a significant definition of both Safety and Quality in sensitive contexts such as aviation. Safety and Quality, as Sasho correctly puts it forward, go hand in hand and the quality profession practice – traced back to the ancient Egyptians and the building of the pyramids – gives birth to new approaches not intrinsically associated with craftsmanship."
