Keeping you informed about what's happening Airside

Issued each month: Airside Operations Department


DISPATCHES The Airside Operations Unit are authorised by the airport authority to monitor and control the airside environment, through the BRS ‘Regulations of Airside Safety’ This process, although very essential, is not just about the reporting of individuals who breach regulation airside, the Airside Ops unit use their observational skills during times of monitoring to identify individuals, (from all of our business partners) who consistently contribute to the overall operation here at Bristol. After consultation with their employer it is agreed that the individual should be named in dispatches and thanked for their positive attitude and commitment to the safe and efficient airside operation.

Kevin Gambling Kevin has worked at Bristol Airport for seven years and is employed by Servisair. Kevin lives in Westonsuper-mare with his partner Debbie and he has two children. Like many of his colleagues, Kevin is a fully skilled airside operative who carries out a number of tasks throughout his weekly shifts. His contribution to the overall operation here at Bristol is greatly appreciated not only by his employer but also by the airport authority who recognises individuals contribution. Paul Orchard (Servisair Ramp manager) “Kevin has worked hard to establish himself as a leading member of the Servisairs ramp team”. Les Watson (Airside Ops supervisor) “Kevin has a good attitude towards his work airside and is always keen to help rectify a problem if asked by Ops personnel”. Steve Probert (Servisair Ramp duty manager) “Regardless of the conditions, Kevin will always give 100% to ensure the job gets done”.

Well done Kevin, keep up the good work BAFOCUS-SEP2010LW Page 1


SAFETY FIRST Each month, the Airside Operations Team ( Inc: Fire department ) will “FOCUS� on an agreed subject to ensure all personnel airside are complying with the requirements of that particular topic. The findings from each months audit will be published in the following months Focus.

This months Focus is:

HIGH VISIBILITY CLOTHING

HIGH VISIBILITY CLOTHING Must be worn at all times whilst airside at Bristol. The tabard or jacket, must be fastened correctly and it must be fit for purpose, I,E, not too dirty to be ineffective.

ON THE ROAD ABROAD Bulgarian, Belgian, Finnish, French, Italian, Norwegian, Austrian, Portuguese, Serbian, Slovakian, Slovenian and Spanish law demand that every vehicle be provided with a high-visibility vest with reflective material certified according to EU standards that is to be worn in emergency situations that force the driver to exit the vehicle. Contrary to common belief, the driver is not required to exit the vehicle wearing highvisibility clothing. However, the law demands that the driver wear it before any attempt to repair the vehicle. In Germany and the Czech Republic only commercial used vehicles have to provide a vest. BAFOCUS-SEP2010LW Page 2

Anonymous Incident Management (AIM)

Overview The Operations Department has introduced a new style of reporting system that is encouraging Safety Promotion within the airside working community. Anonymous Incident Management (or AIM) is a postcard based system for all staff to have the ability to log observations and raise concerns directly with the airport authority (without the fear of reprisal). It is hoped that staff will take responsibility of their own surroundings and submit information on every incident that they witness so that remedial actions can be investigated by Bristol Airport. Any AIM card submitted will be fully investigated. The boxes will be checked daily and all cards will initially be logged onto the Airside Incident Report (AIR) database with the appropriate report to accompany it. The action will be decided by the Airside Operations Department and then issued to the relevant department for rectification or monitoring.

PLEASE NOTE: This is designed to compliment and not replace the current ‘Airside Incident Reports’ (AIR). Incidents of a serious nature will still require immediate reporting action to Bristol Airport

Locations There are currently two ‘mail boxes’ in position. Gate C Crew Search and the baggage Undercroft BAFOCUS-SEP2010LW Page 8
