Airport operator Abu Dhabi Airports has launched its ‘Beat the Heat’ summer heat awareness campaign for 2015.
The campaign runs annually from June to September, and aims to present a comprehensive set of informative guidelines and training sessions for employees on how to safely manage the high temperatures expected in the UAE during the summer.
The intensive campaign, delivered by the Gulf Centre for Aviation Studies (GCAS), the training arm for Abu Dhabi Airports, includes training sessions held at Abu Dhabi International Airport, Al Ain International Airport and Al Bateen Executive Airport to train those employees working outdoors on how to work safely in extreme weather conditions.
Ahmad Al Haddabi, chief operations officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, said, “The multifaceted campaign demonstrates Abu Dhabi Airports’ commitment to providing a healthy and safe workplace for employees, suppliers and subcontractors. Our human capital is our greatest asset and we will continue to put their health and wellbeing first by ensuring we operate in line with optimum safety and security standards.”
