Airport Authority Hong Kong awards WFS with three annual safety awards
The Airport Authority Hong Kong has awarded three annual safety awards to Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) for fostering the airport’s safety culture and enhancing safety awareness in the workplace.
The WFS team were honoured with presentations of the ‘Safety Excellence Merit Award’, the ‘Zero Injury Award’ and the ‘Safety Performance Award’ for the past calendar year at the 2019/20 Safety Awards presentation ceremony. These were accepted on behalf of WFS by James Carey, WFS’ Regional Managing Director Hong Kong and Singapore, from Eddie Chui, Assistant General Manager, Aviation Logistic for Airport Authority Hong Kong.
In addition, eight individual WFS employees working in baggage handling, safety and environmental, lost and found and fueling roles were acknowledged in three other award categories; Accident Prevention Measures, Role Model Safety Behaviour, and Good Safety Suggestion.
WFS was recognised for demonstrating a high-level commitment to safety standards through the implementation and maintenance of an effective safety management system, inspections, incident reporting, safety awareness and staff training.
James Carey said, “The health, safety and security of employees, and their operating environment, remains WFS’ number one priority. It is a great honour to receive three such prestigious awards, which recognise the excellent safety performance of our team. We wish to thank Airport Authority Hong Kong for its regular safety campaigns which constantly raise awareness of the important roles and responsibilities of everyone working in the airport community.”
As the world’s largest air cargo handler and one of the leading providers of ground handling and technical services, serving more than 270 airlines at 180 major airports in 22 countries on five continents, safety and security is at the heart of Worldwide Flight Services’ (WFS) core values. David Clarke, global head of safety and security, added, “Our teams working at major airports across the globe are in the frontline of passenger, cargo, aircraft and airport safety. I congratulate our WFS colleagues in Hong Kong on their well-earned success, which mirrors the very high quality of safety and security we deliver at every station in the WFS network.”
