In our first electrical focussed Webinar we will be talking about the operations behind Flight Safety and Aircraft Safety. The practical safety and human safety of working with AGL electrical circuits.
AGL Safe Working – Do you really understand the dangers when working with Airfield Runway & Taxiway Lights?
AGL systems are traditionally designed, installed and operated as Constant Current circuits with voltages exceeding 1000 volts and current values up to 6.6 amps. There are many dangers associated with electricity and an accidental shock can cause severe burns, damage to internal organs, and even death. Specific safe working processes and procedures are to be implemented by all personnel working on AGL and those who have been trained and assessed competent accordingly.
Aeronautical or Airfield Ground Lighting Personnel – Our Legal Obligations:
It is the aerodrome operator’s responsibility to ensure all personnel involved in the design, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance and management of their aerodrome can COMPETENTLY and SAFELY discharge their duties. In particular those appointed or assigned to carry out the roles and responsibilities are required to ensure compliant Airfield Ground Lighting (AGL) systems, in accordance with the requirements defined by ICAO in Annex 14 and other relevant ICAO Documents (such as ICAO Document 9981-latest Edition), together with Regional & National standards and with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Technical Specification 61821 – and this includes all IEC supporting Technical Specifications.
Specific attention is to be taken regarding the understanding and familiarisation for SAFE WORKING on field-based Constant Current electrical circuits.
Accidents do happen and they are not generally talked about, and often to the detriment of the people who work on these airfields. Let us tackle this topic in our next Webinar – please REGISTER NOW and join us. As usual, our expert panelists will be on hand to answer all of your questions on this topic.
When is it?
Tuesday September 27th @ 1400-1500 London time. This live webinar will last one hour including Q&A’s with our expert panellists. Please sign up now using the registration link below.
