Aircraft turnaround: A guide for airport and aerodrome operators, airlines and service providers on achieving control, co-operation and co-ordination

Date of publication:
Series code:

Advice for airport or aerodrome operators, airlines or aircraft operators, and service providers (including ground handlers) reflecting the significant incidence of accident rates in comparison to other industries and the reality that associated turnaround activities are in the same high risk categories as the construction and agriculture sectors (references cited).

Accordingly, the guidance examines the gamut of everyday dangers facing airport - particularly apron - workers, such as manual handling, falls from heights, moving vehicles, fire and explosion, hazardous substances, noise, electricity, machinery and slips and trips. Also explores all aspects of service provision and covers the critical subject of contracts. Not applicable to private pilots, flying schools, flying clubs or aerodromes that only serve such use.
