Employee Training in Airside Safety

November 2013

Investing in safety training is essential to ensure that aircraft, passengers and staff can all use the airport safely. Safety training is a smart investment because it:

  • reduces accidents and protects employees from injuries. The Flight Safety Foundation estimates that the annual cost of employee injuries in the global aviation industry is $5.8 billion, and a further $4.2 billion in costs for ground accidents and incidents
  • promotes regulatory compliance and avoids costly fines and lawsuits
  • reduces employee turnover and improves productivity – well trained employees are happy, motivated and loyal
  • creates a pool of knowledgeable employees who can fill critical jobs
