The importance of implementing security trainings in aviation

security trainings in aviation

Regulators of the aviation industry emphasise the need to implement comprehensive training and quality assurance programmes to maintain a high standard of the workforce’s performance.

OpeReady allows you to meet regulatory requirements by monitoring compliance and the qualification status of employees.

Many accidents related to aviation happen because of human error. Implementing training is vital to ensure that safety measures are maintained and that incidents are prevented.

Several steps can be taken to ensure a safe and secure environment for the airline industry. One such step is implementing a comprehensive training program for pilots, crew members, ground staff, and other involved personnel. Such a program would include various topics such as emergency procedures, flight planning, weather forecasting, icing conditions, etc.

There are different types of security training for different employee categories:

Aviation security

Aviation security is the process of controlling and monitoring people, their property, and their luggage at a checkpoint of an airport to prevent unwanted items from entering an aircraft.

To do this, airport security inspects passengers’ carry-on luggage for prohibited items before they board the plane. Passengers are also screened to detect concealed weapons and explosives.

Hold baggage screeners 

Hold baggage screeners are professionals who screen, examine and search through passengers’ bags before they are loaded onto aircraft. They also help airlines prevent the spread of diseases and other harmful objects in international air travel. Hold baggage screeners are legally required to be trained, tested, and have a background check.

They prevent prohibited items from being brought into aircraft holds, which may present severe danger for their aircraft, passengers, and crew as well as a considerable amount of financial loss.

At the same time, hold baggage screeners are expected to screen out passengers with ill intentions and render assistance during an emergency.
