Airport Operation Safety

Airport Safety Policy Principles

  • To ensure the efficiency, effectiveness and highest safety and service quality standards of flight infrastructures, systems and equipment;
  • To provide for ongoing review of operational processes and procedures for maximum compliance with national and international regulations on operational safety, quality and efficiency/effectiveness;
  • To implement systematic, regular and appropriate training for all personnel.

Actions and underlying rationale

The actions undertaken are aimed at:

  • strengthening accountability for safety issues in all management and individual employees at all levels involved in the different business activities;
  • setting operational safety as a top priority to be dealt with before anything else;
  • minimising risks associated with all operations, and in particular those connected with aircraft;
  • enforcing the maintenance of safety standards for all operators, companies and external entities operating on airport grounds for whatever reason;
  • maintaining and improving the level of safety achieved through periodic and systematic risk analysis, system traceability, and auditing processes, as well as identifying specific safety objectives with respect to the issues discussed every month during Safety Board and Safety Committee meetings;
  • constant dissemination of awareness raising materials and communications, so that any event that may impact safety will be reported and investigated.

As Airport Operator, SEA believes that personnel training plays a major role in the achievement and maintenance of suitable professional skills, which in turn are essential to achieve and maintain the highest safety levels.
