Health and Safety within Aviation
Discuss in small groups, how the following aircraft hazards could be prevented or minimised?
What are the risks when working airside?
Aircraft hazards and risks
Recognise key areas of an airport
Identify the airport process
Identify surface markings
Understand key terminology
Any driver operating a vehicle within Airside must hold a valid Airport Driving Permit (ADP) which is issued by the Public Relations Office (PRO). Requests for ADPs are to be made to the airport by a letter from the responsible company, and should be accompanied by the following:
One passport sized photo
A photocopy of a valid driving license or valid airport driving license issued by the Police
A completed ADP Application Form
Moving machinery and vehicles
Moving machinery and vehicles
Straying passengers on the apron
Manual handling of heavy bags

Who to report to
Hazards and Risks Video
The primary function of identifying the hazards and assessing the risks airside is to determine whether enough has been done to prevent an incident or accident that may lead to fatalities, injuries and ill health and/or damage to aircraft.
In this way, risk assessments assist in determining whether enough has been done to meet the requirements of aviation law and health and safety legislation and are a key component in any system for managing aircraft safety and occupational health and safety.
If a safety breach happens, you must follow procedures as laid out in your training within 96 hours of occurence.
Differs depending on incident
Report to airport personnel
Report to company personnel
Report to Health and Safety representative
May have to complete paperwork and take photographs
Who do I report it to?
Examples of such losses include:
a) compromised aircraft safety and the potential for a catastrophic aircraft accident;
b) costs of replacing and compensating injured employees or others;
c) contractual penalties or loss of revenue if flights are delayed;
d) damaged assets (including aircraft and equipment);
e) loss of reputation;
f) loss of existing and future contracts.
What does Breach mean?
Taxiways and crossings

APRON (AIRCRAFT STAND)
SINGLE WHITE LINES (Stand Boundary)
CENTRE LINES (For Aircraft Guidance)
DOUBLE WHITE LINES (Stand Limits protecting taxiway)
Engine danger zones
A violation or infraction as of a law, a legal obligation or a promise
What breaches could occur airside?
Manual handling training provides information on how to lift heavy loads correctly to minimise injury when lifting/moving heavy objects.
It is the law that anyone who has to lift move or carry heavy equipment in their job role then they must receive manual handling training.
What do you think this baggage handler is at risk from?
MANUAL HANDLING - AVOID INJURIES
THERE ARE MANY HANDLING AND TRIP HAZARDS – YOU MUST RECEIVE PROPER MANUAL HANDLING TRAINING IF YOU ARE EXPECTED TO LIFT, CARRY OR MOVE LOADS MANUALLY.
(Manual Handling Regulations apply)
YOU MUST BE PROPERLY TRAINED TO OPERATE MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT AND IN ADDITION, HOLD A CURRENT AIRSIDE DRIVING PERMIT IF REQUIRED TO DRIVE VEHICLES ON THE AIRSIDE AREAS.
Lots of vehicles and machinery move about on the ramp
FOD (Foreign Object Debris)
Any bit of rubbish left on the tarmac is classed as FOD.
All fuel has a potential to cause a fire with any spark or friction
Slips and trips account for almost a quarter of accidents to people at airports
Potential v's Actual
The threat that something could happen
An incident that has actually happened
The UK aviation industry has an excellent safety record and safety is monitored continuously by the Civil Aviation Authority.
E.g. Whilst the catering company are loading meals onto the aircraft the catering truck damages the side of the aircraft
Airport personnel notified, incident report form completed.
Company personnel e.g. catering company
Health & Safety representative
The incident report sent to CAA who would decide whether to investigate.
