6th Ground Damage Stakeholders' Conference

The 6th Ground Damage Stakeholders' Conference took place in Belfast, over May 16-18.

Safety lies at the heart of our industry and it is a subject that can never be overlooked. And whilst fatalities on the ramp are rare, nonetheless the incidence of ground damage, on a worldwide scale, remains a huge worry to the sector. This specialist conference drew together those whose remit is safety – and sought to provide some of the answers to the ramp’s ongoing problems.

The following topics were presented:

  • Thinking outside the box: how safety is addressed in other high-risk sectors
  • GSE and maintenance: what you need to know
  • Raising safety standards within a multi-ethnic workforce
  • OTP and safety: are they mutually exclusive?
  • The Big Five Worries: what keeps you awake at night?
  • Is ground damage universal? A report from the military sector
  • ISAGO: how it can help ground operations
  • GSE safety aids: a sector update
  • What is the true cost of preventing ground damage?
  • The creep of risk during the workshift – and how to combat it

Included as part of the conference agenda was a tour of Mallaghan’s factory.

This event presented a rare opportunity for those within this specialist area to learn more, compare notes and discuss safety issues with others involved in the same discipline.
