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.
