Airport Construction Risk Management and Safety

Airport Construction and Occupational Safety

Airports are a lot like miniature cities - dynamic, complex and expansive, with lots of moving parts, and disruptive incidents that need to be managed daily. Airports operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week so terminals and facilities must continue to operate safely while construction work is going on.  Construction sites combine powerful mobile equipment and tools, heavy materials, and human beings, all placed within a crowded work space. This is a formula for accidents. This webinar will look at airport safety and security, preventing and controlling accidents and hazards, and keeping airport construction projects on schedule.
