O'Hare Receives FAA 2012 Regional Safety Award

Management and staff at O'Hare accomplished several significant safety enhancements while safely managing the O'Hare Modernization Program (OMP), one of the largest airport construction projects in the nation


  • In the interest of runway safety, the airport has expanded its airfield training program to require all personnel working on the airfield (non-airport and airport employees) to receive training in airport familiarization and other airport related subject areas. This enhanced training has been effective in reducing the risk of vehicle/pedestrian runway incursions and accidents at O'Hare.  

O'Hare has not had any violations of FAA14 CFR Part 139 in the last three years during its annual Airport Certification Inspections. In addition, the airport acted on safety recommendations provided by the FAA.
