Safely Navigating the Industry Recovery: a look at occupational health and safety in the context of COVID
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an unprecedented and lasting impact on the aviation industry CANSO, International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Association (IFATCA), International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) are excited to have announced the launch of a second webinar series that will focus on the safe recovery to normal operations.
This first session looked at occupational health and safety in the context of COVID, and the ability of operational staff to go back to normal working environments. In the new normal, new health measures can impact staff scheduling and there are several unknowns when it comes to long term impacts of COVID infection.
Managing a working environment with all these variables and changing requirements is challenging.Amed at colleagues from ANSPs, ATC/OCC Shift Supervisors, ATC Unit/OCC Managers, Training Managers and Directors, and airlines, the webinar addressed some of these issues and discussed possible mitigation measures.
