That incident doesn't have to be the sort of spectacular event that makes headlines. The smallest, most mundane interaction on the ramp can result in one more injured person, grounded aircraft, and/or staggering repair bill.
According to the Flight Safety Foundation, nearly 250,000 people are injured in airport ground operations every year.
And yet every one of these incidents is fully preventable by simply creating and following safety procedures and employing appropriate safety equipment in your operation.
The annual cost of ramp safety incursions, often falling under the trivializing name "hangar rash" is approximately $5 billion.
According to the Flight Safety Foundation, the bulk of these incidents never reach the deductible threshold for insurance, so these costs are often borne by the operators themselves.
And unlike airside incidents where fault and preventability can be arguable, EVERY SINGLE RAMP INCIDENT could have been prevented by following simple guidelines and procedures.
