    The various jobs involved in turning an aircraft around

    One of the most significant areas where a lot of serious accidents happen is in and around the aircraft during what they call their turnaround period. Aircraft turnaround times have become ever shorter with many different people and companies being involved in the various aspects that need to be undertaken post-haste. These activities include:

    • Walking up to an aircraft while its engines are still running
    • Helping passengers to disembark
    • Helping passengers to embark
    • Handling passenger luggage on and off the aircraft
    • Aircraft maintenance
    • Aircraft refuelling
    • De-icing of the wings
    • Topping up the catering provisions
    • Cleaning the aircraft cabin

    Employers’ duties of care

    There may be any number of companies involved the various activities. But whoever these companies are, they each have a duty of care to their employees which must includes:

    • Carrying out risk assessments for their own employees, putting measures in place and issuing any appropriate PPE to mitigate any risks
    • Taking the risks to any other workers into consideration and mitigating accordingly
    • Co-operating and coordinating with all other suppliers of staff and their employees involved in the turnaround process
    • Putting appropriate systems in place to control and manage any subcontractors
    • Putting appropriate systems in place to monitor the mechanics of the turn-round activities

    Aircraft maintenance-working at height

    Aircraft maintenance is a particular area of risk because of the fact that maintenance staff often have to work at height. Falls from height can cause catastrophic injuries and so every precaution must be made to keep workers safe.

    Working at height should only ever be carried out when there is no other alternative, and suitable working platforms must be provided with appropriate edge protection. It is also vitally important to ensure that these moving platforms are carefully and regularly maintained.
