Working The Ramp For Special Events


Safety your attitude common sense
“SAFETY”Your Attitude & Common Sense


Ramp safety
RAMP SAFETY

  • Do you understand the safety rules that apply to ramp areas?

  • Have you had an orientation on hazards associated with ramp areas?

  • Do you know what activities are prohibited?

  • Do you know what areas are prohibited?

  • Have you been trained and certified to drive vehicle on ramp and airport areas?


Ramp safety1
RAMP SAFETY

  • Know what your job task is and how to do it safely

  • Make sure you know the Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) required and proper use

  • Exercise caution…be aware of activities around you…do not RUSH


Ramp safety2
RAMP SAFETY

  • If you are unsure about how to do your tasks safely…STOP… Ask questions.

  • Horseplay around aircraft is strictly prohibited—even slight damage to an aircraft is very costly, e.g. on a piston aircraft one pilot had a truck back into a wing tip and damage was limited to the tip only, the total repair costs was $19,000.


Ramp safety3
RAMP SAFETY

  • ALWAYS be aware of your surroundings and activities around your work area

  • Stay in your designated work area…DO NOT WANDER!

  • DO NOT RUN on ramp area


Ramp safety4
RAMP SAFETY

  • Ramps may be slippery due to moisture and oil and fuel spills-- Wear slip resistant shoes!

  • Wear safety boots with impact protection when handling tow bars, heavy boxes and baggage


Ramp hazards
RAMP HAZARDS

You must wear hearing protection at all times

  • While working on the ramp you may encounter jet or prop blast

  • Auxiliary Power Units (APU) and Ground Power Units (GPU) are also loud


Ramp hazards1
RAMP HAZARDS

W0RKING AROUND AIRCRAFT

  • Avoid exhaust fumes

  • Avoid propeller blades

  • Avoid main and tail rotor on helicopters – NEVER walk directly behind a helicopter or near the tail rotor

  • Propeller blades and rotor blades are nearly invisible when moving


JET BLAST CHALLENGES

  • DO NOT WALK BEHIND aircraft with beacon flashing

  • AIRCRAFT SAFETY ZONES

    • Between 13 and 16 feet forward of engine inlet

    • Up to 100 feet to the rear of the aircraft

    • Powerful suction could pull people into inlet killing them instantly

    • Jet blast can exceed 300 mph


Ramp hazards2
RAMP HAZARDS

  • Jet engine intakes

  • Aircraft wings

  • Tie down cables

  • Poor lighting

  • Water / Oil

  • Ice

  • Tugs/Trucks

NEVER WALK UNDER AIRCRAFT!


Ramp hazards3
RAMP HAZARDS

  • Smoking--NO smoking is allowed

    • On ramp

    • In FBO

    • In Hangars


RAMP HAZARDSYou are prohibited from carrying smoking materials while working.

  • NO safety matches

  • NO strike any-where matches

  • NO cigarette lighters

  • NO ignition sources of any kind


Ramp hazards4
RAMP HAZARDS

IN THE EVENT THAT YOU HAVE CONTACT WITH FUEL—

  • Report incident immediately to appropriate person (e.g. line manager, FBO manager or emergency contact)

  • Rinse and clean all skin areas that have been in contact with fuel

  • All clothing that has absorbed fuel MUST be removed ASAP to prevent further contact with the skin

  • Ensure that the spill is cleaned up properly and safely


Ramp hazards5
RAMP HAZARDS

  • Know where the eye wash station and showers are located. Rinse your eyes for a minimum of 15 minutes if you get fuel or foreign objects in your eyes.

  • Seek medical attention as necessary afterwards


Ramp hazards6
RAMP HAZARDS

  • Jet/Prop blast can propel small objects, FOD

  • FOD (foreign object damage) – The aircraft can be damaged or you can be injured by FOD

  • FOD includes pens, screws, bolts and miscellaneous garbage

  • FOD can inflict serious injury to people, aircraft and

    equipment


Ramp hazards7
RAMP HAZARDS

  • Do NOT wear any jewelry such as dangling earrings, charm bracelets (Serious FOD issue and poses serious danger around equipment)

  • Exercise extreme caution when on the ramp at nights

    • Wear reflective vest or clothing

    • Keep a safe distance from moving vehicles and equipment.

    • Look for hazards that are not easily visible in the dark


Ramp hazards8
RAMP HAZARDS

COMMON EQUIPMENT HAZARDS

  • Protruding parts on aircraft

  • Many vehicles on the ramp, i.e. fuel trucks, support vehicles – airport emergency vehicles “HAVE THE RIGHT AWAY”.

  • Stay clear of all props whether engine

    is operating or not


Ramp hazards9
RAMP HAZARDS

  • DO NOT walk behind an airplane that has started to taxi

  • NEVER walk under aircraft wing

  • When you need to approach an aircraft ALWAYS make eye contact with the pilot first


Ramp hazards10
RAMP HAZARDS

  • Do not wear shoes with a heel higher than one and a half inches

  • Do not use cellular phones on the ramp

  • All electronic devices must be approved prior to use on ramp


Common courtesy
COMMON COURTESY

Do not go on board aircraft unless invited to do so


Weather considerations
WEATHER CONSIDERATIONS

  • Thunder and lightning: if the sound of thunder is less than 25 seconds after the lightning flash, go inside immediately.

  • Formula for estimating the proximity of an approaching thunderstorm: five (5) seconds of elapsed time between the lightning flash and the sound of thunder = one (1) mile.


Weather considerations1
WEATHER CONSIDERATIONS

  • Wind, Fog, Snow

  • Extreme heat or cold.
