    Common hazards in the airport industry


    Airports are busy places and you’ll find a variety of different types of workers employed in different roles, from ground staff to cabin crew. Whether you work as a baggage handler, front desk check-in staff or an aircraft engineer, you’ll find that there are common hazards in the airport industry that could lead to an accident. But if you are injured at work, you may be able to make a personal injury claim if you can prove somebody else was responsible for your accident.

    How have you been injured?

    Common hazards in the airport industry could include:

    • Noise – you could be exposed to loud levels of noise from aircraft, and ear protection should be provided and worn
    • Exposure to fumes and gases such as carbon monoxide, particularly relevant for engineers or those working on the ground, such as those fuelling aircraft
    • Manual handling – lifting heavy luggage into overhead lockers on board a plane, handling luggage at check in or lifting heavy or awkward materials could lead to manual handling or repetitive strain injuries
    • Faulty equipment such as damaged ramps or stairs could lead to a fall getting on or off aircraft or whilst securing ramps or stairs

    If you work at an airport in any role and you are injured, have you stopped to think about who’s to blame for your accident? If more could have been done to prevent you being injured, it could be that your employer will be held liable for your injuries, and you could make a 100% no win, no fee personal injury claim.
