Canada’s Airports Focus on Aviation Safety

OTTAWA, Ontario–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Canadian Airports Safety Week is returning this year from June 17th
to 21st 2019. The initiative is being led by the Canadian
Airports Council (CAC), in collaboration with 29 participating airports
across the country to promote healthy and safe work practices among
airport employees.

Safety at airports is always a top priority as it affects everyone,
whether you’re a passenger or airport employee. Canada’s airports have
made significant investments over the years in their infrastructure,
including safety related airside projects, to ensure all workers and
passengers are safe. This week is a prime opportunity to remind airport
employees of the safety culture at airports as well as a chance to thank
them for their contributions to safety.

Participating airports will be hosting a variety of activities to
promote the following themes:

Worker Safety
Airside Safety
Security Safety
Hazard
Reporting
Environmental Safety
Foreign Object Debris (FOD)
Free Friday

By encouraging discussion and the involvement of all airport workers in
maintaining a safe working environment, we can ensure that the safety of
passengers and employees remains our first priority. Canadian Airports
Safety Week represents a commitment to educate and improve knowledge and
enthusiasm for safety.
