Handling Health and Safety Goals

This article discusses the activities of the Independent Aviation Handlers Association (IAHA), which represents independent ground handlers worldwide and provides a forum for consultation on industry issues. One of the most important projects currently underway by the IAHA is a health and safety performance benchmarking project. For the project, IAHA members are providing detailed information on their handling activities. For now, only information regarding aircraft damage is being collected, but eventually information on personal injuries will also be kept. This data will be used to provide a database of information that can be used by IAHA members to compare their performance relative to other members. The information will also be used by the IAHA itself to offer proof of operational efficiency and safe performance as well as to identify common problem areas.
