Aircraft Ramp Safety and Ramp Human Factors Initial Training


About the training:

Ramp accidents cost major airlines worldwide at least US$10 billion a year, the data indicates. These accidents affect airport operations, result in personnel injuries, and damage aircraft, facilities and ground-support equipment. The importance of Human Factors Initial training for Ground Staff has been increasingly recognized as part of the effective management of competency within the ramp environment. Moreover, from September 2017 ISAGO accreditation requires ramp staff to undergo such training. Sofema Aviation Services developed a course, to raise awareness among all organisational elements of Ramp Safety.

Delegates will understand the exposure created by Human Factors and will get familiar with the best practice safety procedures on the ramp. The primary goal of Aircraft Ramp Safety and Ramp Human Factors Training is to create a positive environment which will help to lower turnaround and Layover. Additional benefits will be: understanding the importance of Communications and Team Behaviour, reducing human errors, mitigating risks and developing a safe attitude and behaviour.
