Canadian Airports Safety Week, run by the Canadian Airports Council (CAC), has returned, running from June 17 to June 21, 2019.
Led by CAC in collaboration with 29 participating airports across the country, the initiative will promote healthy and safe work practices among airport employees.
Canada’s airports have made significant investments over the years in their infrastructure, including safety-related airside projects, to ensure all workers and passengers are safe.
Canadian Airports Safety Week is seen as a key opportunity to remind airport employees of the safety culture at airports as well as a chance to thank them for their contributions to safety.
Participating airports will host a variety of activities to promote these themes: worker safety; airside safety; security safety; hazard reporting; environmental safety; and foreign object debris (FOD)- free Friday.
Airports taking part in the 2019 program include Aéroport de Québec, Calgary Airport Authority, and Saskatoon Airport Authority.
The 554 members of the Canadian Airports Council (CAC), a division of Airports Council International-North America (ACI-NA), represent more than 100 airports, including all of the privately operated National Airport System (NAS) airports and many municipal airports across Canada. They handle more than 90% of the commercial air traffic in Canada, and an even greater share of international traffic.
