Safety/Operations

The ACI World Safety and Technical Standing Committee (STSC) developed this Handbook to provide methodologies and best practices that can be implemented to assist airport operators to achieve a “state of the art” level of runway safety. This handbook provides guidance material for the development of a runway safety programme for all aerodrome (large or small) as well as ways to tailor, improve and expand existing programmes.

This guide aims to equip managers with a deeper understanding of the human factors that contribute to effective passenger screening. These factors cover the 'people' involved and how we recruit, select and train our security officers. They address the 'organization' structures and the work processes we use. They look at the 'technology' component - the critical interface between man and machine - and how well we optimize the screening checkpoint's working 'environment'.

Wildlife Hazard Management is an important element of the operations of all airports. ACI is pleased to announce the release of the expanded and updated ACI Wildlife Hazard Management Handbook.

ACI Best Industry Practice Safety Management System (SMS) Gap Analysis and Audit Tool and accompanying Guidelines - 2010. In addition to the actual Audit Tool, the associated Guidelines will make it easier for auditors to perform a baseline audit and subsequently periodic audits, to assess the airport’s SMS, identify gaps and/or areas of improvement, thus enhancing safety at their site.
This handbook is a useful complement to ICAO documentation, such as Annex 14, Volume I (Aerodrome Design and Operations) and the Aerodrome Design Manual, Part 4 (Visual Aids) and is intended for use by planners of apron areas, ground staff working on aprons, air traffic controllers, apron controllers and pilots.
