ICAO Airside Safety Awareness

The training takes place each day between 9:00 a.m. CET and 04:00 p.m. CET

The Airside Safety Awareness training provides an introduction to the safety measures to observe on an airfield. It focuses on the employer and employee responsibility and aims at enhancing awareness about the different dangers present at an airfield, as well as on area-related safety procedures. It encompasses the safety best practices when performing maintenance activities from a height, in a confined space and with high voltage equipment.

We also explain the mechanisms behind electric shocks and the behavior to observe in case of fire emergency or if a first aid intervention is needed.

It is designed to give the participant the mindset to always be aware to what he is doing at the airport and to be mindful of the hazards at risk.
