Eye on Safety Spotlight

Airfield Electrical Team, GTAA 


Airfield electrical GTAA

The GTAA Airfield Electrical Maintenance Team has not only corrected over 5200 lights on the airfield since August 2022, but they have also maintained the ability for aircraft to safely arrive and depart at night and in low visibility conditions. This team was recognized for their tireless efforts to keep the travelling public, aircraft, pilots, the aviation community and other GTAA airside staff safe during night operations! 

Fire Services Instructors at FESTI


Every day, our team works with students and instructs them on safe practices and hazard awareness. The team, which includes Neil Stephens, Jade McGarr, Randy Fleming, Alan Brody, Chad Kavanaugh, Mark Smith, Chris Thomas and Steph Haldane, work with clients and staff in a high-risk environment, yet maintains a low recordable injury rate. Congratulations to this outstanding team at our Fire Emergency Services Training Institute!

Despite the stress and urgency of the situation, Parveen kept her cool in directing medical assistance to the scene. Thank you, Parveen, for your continued efforts, your situational awareness and practicing safe reporting!
