Focus And Standards Can Prevent Ramp Accidents

Remaining keenly aware of the potential danger in our everyday workplace takes not just focus, but training and standardizing best practices.


 

All of the above can be culminated in an integrated and comprehensive safety program for the entire organization.

It may not be possible to eliminate all risk as it is inherent in what we do, and the tools and equipment we use to do it, but documenting procedures establishes expectations and sets standards for operational behavior. Furthermore it provides a framework with which to measure accountability and strive for continued improvement.

Remaining safe on the ground is everyone’s responsibility.
