Abu Dhabi Airports has kicked off this week its annual Safety Week with a series of activities designed to increase awareness of aviation safety standards and best practices among its employees and airport stakeholders.

 

The programme of activities included a Foreign Object Debris (FOD) pick up walk. During the walk, Abu Dhabi Airports’ executives, employees and stakeholders walked across the airside of Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) collecting any objects that may have posed a risk to aircraft.

As a part of Safety Week, a special tent was erected on the airside of AUH where employees and stakeholders were invited to attend a series of safety presentations and exhibitions. Topics covered included dealing with dangerous goods, managing heat stress, runway safety, the role of regulators and employee wellness management.

Ahmed Al Shamsi, acting chief operations officer at Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “Abu Dhabi Airports is deeply committed to ensuring the safety, health and welfare of all of its employees, stakeholders, partners and travelers. Through Safety Week and its activities we aim to promote and engrain a culture of safety at our airports and encourage our employees to prioritise their safety and provide a safe environment for all airport users.”

“At Abu Dhabi Airports we continuously strive to enhance our health and safety practices, and regularly educate our employees about risk management and associated best practices. Safety is fundamental to maintaining the operational integrity of our airports and contributes to our vision of becoming the world’s leading airports group,” added Al Shamsi

Safety Week and its programme of activities is supported by Abu Dhabi Airports’ Airside Safety – Operations department and organised in partnership with airport stakeholders including Etihad Airways, the General Civil Aviation Authority, Abu Dhabi Health Services, the Gulf Center for Aviation Studies, Abu Dhabi Customs, Abu Dhabi Police and the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company.
