Best Practices Manual for Working In or Near Airport Movement Areas

Airport operators are challenged by the competing interests of safely conducting activities in the airport movement areas while minimizing impacts on flight operations. Yet many operational, maintenance, and construction activities occur in or near airport movement areas out of necessity. Airports across the country utilize various practices to help ensure the safety of employees and the flying public when the activities themselves cannot be eliminated or deferred to periods when the airfield is not in operation. This report provides guidance to airports, tenants, and contractors in identifying best practices for a myriad of airport activities through (1) a best practices database; (2) training tools, aids, and checklists; and (3) a 45-minute video that is a useful resource for introducing new employees, tenants, or contractors to the airport environment. The video, Staying Safe on the Airfield, follows an airport operations supervisor training a new employee by discussing hazards and the appropriate best practices for eliminating or mitigating risks while working in or near the airport movement area. The database, video, and training tools, and aids and checklists (also referred to as templates) are in electronic format on the associated CRP-CD-150.
