Keeping passengers and staff healthy and our facilities clean and safe has always been a top priority here at Skyservice, and we are especially proud to announce our recent National Air Transportation Association (NATA) Safety 1st certification for all of our Fixed Based Operation (FBO) facilities across Canada; Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Calgary. The Safety 1st Clean Standard is considered the highest certification providing general guidance on facility cleaning, disinfecting and facility operations in response to a pandemic. Designed to safeguard FBO team members, clients, corporate assets and the general public, NATA is dedicated to helping reduce the spread of contagious disease.
As businesses around the world continue to face unprecedented events, it is important to understand that while no cleaning and disinfecting standard is failsafe, the Safety 1st Clean Standard represents industry best practices and government agency guidance, designed to protect passengers and staff to the highest level.
All Skyservice employees have and will continue to receive training on their role in preventing the spread of contagions. Some of the numerous stringent practices for cleaning and disinfecting include more frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces, implementing social distancing at work, proper personal hygiene, evaluations for symptoms of disease prior to and during work, and the use of alcohol-based hand rubs (ABHR) of at least 60 percent alcohol for team members in easy-to-access areas, to name just a few. Only organizations that complete all components of this optional self-certification process have permission to use and display the Safety 1st Clean Standard logo.
As a recipient of this designation, Skyservice remains dedicated to leading the Canadian aviation business in its commitment to help reduce the spread of infectious disease.
