Canada’s Airports Celebrate Airports Safety Week

OTTAWA – (September 12, 2022) Canadian Airports Safety Week is returning this year from September 12th – 16th 2022. Despite the ongoing challenges that airports are facing as the COVID-19 pandemic persists, airports are still prioritizing safety and working to commemorate this week with peer learning and sharing best practices.

Canadian Airports Safety Week is held to promote healthy and safe work practices amongst airport employees. It is led by the Canadian Airports Council (CAC), in collaboration with 17 participating airports across the country.

“Safety is essential to the operations of an airport, protecting not just passengers but airport staff,” said CAC President Monette Pasher. “Canada’s airports are continuing to ensure safety is a top priority, with investments in new infrastructure, screening technology and investing in developing a safety culture. Everyone should feel safe and be safe at an airport, whether they are a traveller or an employee.”

As Canadians return to air travel en masse this year, Airports Safety Week is a great way to remind airport employees of the culture of safety at airports, as well as thank them for their contributions.

Activities and discussions will focus on promoting the following themes:

COVID-19 Safety Measures

Worker Safety

Airside Safety

Security Safety

Hazard Reporting

Environmental Safety

Foreign Object Debris (FOD) Free Day


By encouraging discussion and the involvement of all airport workers in maintaining a safe working environment, we can ensure that the safety of passengers and employees remains our first priority. Canadian Airports Safety Week represents a commitment to educate and improve knowledge and enthusiasm for safety.
