The aircraft ramp is a high-risk environment that poses various hazards to ground crew, ground handlers, and other personnel involved in aircraft operations.
An aircraft cabin is the section of an aircraft in which passengers travel. Most modern commercial aircraft are pressurized, as cruising altitudes are high enough such that the surrounding atmosphere is too thin for passengers and crew to breathe.
Traveling can be stressful for anyone, but it can be especially challenging for passengers with disabilities. One of the biggest challenges for aviation services is dispatching wheelchairs for passengers who require them.
If an emergency landing occurs, passengers should listen carefully to the instructions provided by the flight crew. If instructed to evacuate the aircraft, passengers should move quickly and calmly to the nearest emergency exit.
A pre-flight checklist lists tasks that pilots and flight crews must complete prior to takeoff in aviation. Its aim is to improve flight safety by ensuring that no important tasks are overlooked. Failure to properly conduct a preflight check using a checklist is a major contributing factor to aircraft accidents.
Food safety refers to food preparation, food handling, and storage procedures in order to avoid foodborne illness and injury.
Food products may encounter a variety of health hazards as they travel through the supply chain, from farm to factory to fork.
