FDH&S 2022 Session Recordings

FDH&S 22 (FOD Drones Habitat & Safety) was held on three Wednesdays throughout March, and the sessions are now available to rewatch.

The experiences of other airports are invaluable to all who seek to apply best practices in terms of procedures, technology, and efficiency in order to continually evaluate and contain the threats and hazards of the future, and FDH&S focussed on identifying these within the airport environment and explored how the industry can adapt and advance its responses to pre-empt future hazards.

 “In an ever-changing world, staying at the forefront of safety and security has never been so important.  Through events such as FDH&S, invaluable knowledge share and best practice recommendations will only enhance how we as a community remain innovative and efficient in how we manage and operate our facilities.
