Airport Accident Analysis and Impacts to Safety Zones

Aviation accident data has limitations for establishing airport safety zones used to guide airport-vicinity land use decisions. Establishing uniform reporting criteria across responsible agencies will assist local jurisdictions to define safety zones and apply them to maintain airport viability.

When a natural disaster or accident disrupts the airfield lighting and electrical system, the lack of staff or available local qualified airfield electricians may seriously delay the recovery of airfield operations. Airfield electrical systems are inherently dangerous; therefore, special training is required to maintain safely.

Improving Airport Employee Well-Being through Targeted Programs and Tracking Metrics

Airport employees face many challenges that can create stress, and if employee stress levels are not addressed, employee health and well-being suffers.
