Sydney Airport recognized for incident and emergency management training

Sydney Airport in Australia has won an award from the Australian Airports Association (AAA) in recognition of its incident and emergency management strategy for airport employees. The award is part of Airport Safety Week 2016, taking place from October 17 to 21.

The airport’s incident and emergency management strategy has enhanced safety through new tools, technology and initiatives such as an improved communications system; better weather tracking and forecasts; and greater collaboration with airport stakeholders.

Sydney Airport has also invested in a new, state-of-the-art operations center, which will support the airport’s planning and management of significant events by delivering greater operational resilience, flexibility, scalability and collaboration in a dynamic operating environment.

Airport Safety Week, sponsored by Sydney Airport, is tailored to engage with people working in an airport environment. The targeted safety campaign is a collaboration between the AAA and the New Zealand Airports Association.

Kerrie Mather, managing director and CEO, Sydney Airport, said, “It’s our priority to deliver the highest levels of safety and security for our passengers, staff and stakeholders. We’re thrilled that our strong safety culture has been recognized through this Airport Safety Week award and we’re very proud of our people’s commitment to living our safety values in their daily work.

“We’ll continue to drive improvement in the areas of safety and security as part of our vision to provide a world-class airport experience.”

The Airport Safety Awards are a key part of Airport Safety Week, recognizing the hard work and innovation of individuals, teams and projects to improve safety at airports across Australasia. As part of Airport Safety Week, Sydney Airport will host a range of events for staff at the airport, including a foreign object debris (FOD) walk across the airfield; a safety panel to discuss Sydney Airport’s safety strategy; toolbox talks on key safety issues; and health and wellbeing initiatives.
