Aberdeen International Airport has achieved a five-star grading for its health and safety management.
The British Safety Council carried out an evaluation of the airport’s occupational health and safety policies, processes and practices, awarding it a five-star rating.
The audit process included reviewing documents, interviews with senior management, employees and other stakeholders, together with sampling of operational activities.
Aldrich Blignaut, HSE manager at the airport, said their safety management system is an “important aspect” of the day-to-day running of operations.
He added: “An external assessment of our system provides assurance that the processes we have in place function as intended.”
David Parr, policy and technical services director at the British Safety Council, said: “The award of a five-star grading following our occupational best practice health and safety audit is an outstanding achievement and is reflective of a proactive organisation which is committed to continual improvement in its health and safety arrangements and managing risks to workers’ health, safety and welfare.
“Aberdeen International Airport should be very proud of this achievement.”
