Glasgow Airport became the first airport in the UK to get the highest safety rating from the British Safety Council, a leading occupational health and safety organization in May 2013.
The Scottish capital’s main airport was awarded the five star rating after a comprehensive assessment by the safety body.
The Occupational Health and Safety Audit consisted of interviews with airport staff, site tours, inspections and a review of the airport’s safety management systems.
Alex Botha, chief executive of the British Safety Council, stated that the Council’s auditors were able to identify many strengths in the airport’s operational risk management.
Senior management provided a key role in its effective direction and leadership. Additionally, the airport’s wider workforce worked together to ensure the safety and security of the airport.
