Health and Safety

The highest standards for occupational health and safety are a prerequisite for the delivery of consistent top-quality services and our long-term business success.

At Swissport, ensuring the health and safety of our employees and aviation collaboration partners is our utmost priority. To achieve this, we adhere to the highest standards of occupational health and safety in our daily service delivery. It is our goal to be recognized as the health and safety leader in airport ground services and air cargo handling.

Operating safely is a priority which Swissport does not compromise on. We consistently monitor safety performance across our organization on a weekly basis and integrate it into our performance scorecards. Every company meeting includes a Safety Moment. The goal of the Safety Moment is to draw awareness to pertinent safety topics as well as to reinforce our safety commitments.

Even with the most rigorous regulations and regular safety trainings, we have not yet been able to eliminate all risks. However, we continue to work relentlessly towards our zero-accident target. By addressing any deviations from our agreed-upon standard procedures, we aim to detect safety risks at their source, which allows us to implement remedies before incidents or accidents occur.
Safety first

REDUCING HEALTH AND SAFETY RISKS

Ensuring the health and safety of our employees and aviation collaboration partners is our utmost priority. To achieve this, we adhere to the highest standards of occupational health and safety in our daily service delivery. Our global standards are in alignment with international industry benchmarks such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), IATA Ground Operations Manual (IGOM), IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO), ISO 9001 and ISO 45001. 

 

MEASURES AND CONTROL MECHANISMS

International Standards

At individual locations worldwide, we implemented an integrated management system. By introducing the Swissport Management System, we obtain ISO 9001 and ISAGO accreditation where it is mandated by local authorities. Swissport actively participates in the ISAGO audit program at selected locations, including at our corporate head office. Elsewhere, we have a comprehensive audit program covering internal, customer, and regulatory audits. We also apply a mix of measures to educate employees on health and safety issues as well as approved workplace procedures.

Trends and TARGETS FOR GREATER SAFETY

our zero-accident target

Even with the most rigorous regulations and regular safety training, we have not yet been able to eliminate all risks. However, we continue to work relentlessly toward our zero-accident target. By addressing any deviations from our agreed-upon standard procedures, we aim to detect safety risks at their source, which allows us to implement remedies before incidents or accidents occur.
