“Safety is always the number one priority in aviation.  Canadian Airports Safety Week brings thousands of airport workers together in their communities to focus attention on key areas of industry safety,” said Daniel-Robert Gooch, president of the CAC. “The continued safety and security of Canada’s skies depend not only on well-maintained infrastructure and modern equipment but also on the training and ongoing vigilance of the many workers at airports who proudly uphold a high commitment to safety on a daily basis.”

Participating airports will be hosting a variety of activities to promote the following themes:

  • Day 1 – Monday, October 2nd, 2017: Worker Safety
  • Day 2 – Tuesday, October 3rd, 2017: Airside Safety
  • Day 3 – Wednesday, October 4th, 2017: Security Safety
  • Day 4 – Thursday, October 5th, 2017: Hazard Reporting and Environmental Safety
  • Day 5 – Friday, October 6th, 2017: Foreign Object Debris (FOD) Free Friday

Canadian Airports Safety Week is a collaborative effort, and represents a commitment to educate and improve knowledge and enthusiasm for safety. It was first launched in 2015, with 24 participating airports across the country.
