Improve Apron Safety to Avoid Aircraft Ground Damage
The safe aircraft ground handling requires proper equipment, understandable work instructions and relevant training. Without them, the economic losses can be huge and the human consequences can be even fatal. So it’s no surprise that airlines and ground handling agents are paying more attention to staff training and guidance.
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) calculates the cost of such accidents to be up to 5 billion dollars a year.
"In order to run operations safely, airlines and ground handling agents must comply with legal requirements and provide basic or recurrent training to ensure the competence of employees."
Proper Training is Mandatory and Can Prevent Costly Damages
In order to run operations safely, airlines and ground handling agents must also comply with legal requirements and provide basic or recurrent training to ensure the competence of employees.
Proper Ground Service Equipment (GSE) handling and training is important part of Apron Safety. The essential learning objective of GSE training is to teach students how to prevent costly damage to equipment and aircraft on the ground. With our online eLearning course you can increase the awareness of apron safety and provide necessary and practical tools to GSE operations.
