A 90 minute Webinar bringing together business leaders from leading airlines, ground handlers, airports and industry suppliers to discuss a blueprint for safer ramp activity as operations return from the coronavirus pandemic. The session will include an online audience Q&A and be chaired by GHI Conference Chairman, Max Gosney.Topics:
- A safe restart post Covid-19: What best practice measures should stations be taking as they look to reintroduce employees to the apron environment? Training and refreshing safety awareness.
- The socially distanced turnaround: examining how an emphasis on physical distances balances with the demands of turning an aircraft. How will we accommodate distancing into SOPs when the OTP pressure is on? We’ll also look at PPE and cleaning implications following the Covid-19 crisis.
- Reducing manual handling injuries through GSE: back strains, musculoskeletal disorders and injured arms and legs are an occupational hazard among our ramp teams performing heavy lifting, pushing, pulling and carrying. We’ll examine what role innovative GSE can play in reducing the injury risk and leading to more productive and healthier operations.
