The Airport Authority takes safety very seriously. Our most important mission is to help ensure the safety of our passengers at San Diego International Airport. This mission extends to our employees, too.
In the days following After the recent region-wide power outage on Thursday, September 8, 2011, Airport Authority employees sent letters of gratitude to Jeff, the Employee Safety and Workers Compensation Analyst in Human Resources. Why? well, in recent years Jeff and the Airport Authority Employee Safety Committee have taken many opportunities to help our employees prepare for emergencies.
This team monitors employee evacuation drills, organizes our participation in the Great Shake Out statewide earthquake drill, and maintains all of our first aid kits. In addition, they hold an annual safety event to make sure “safety” remains a top priority for all of us. At many of these events, Jeff and the team have supplied employees with some great emergency tools. Among them: a crank radio, a crank flashlight and an emergency kit in a water bottle.
Well, it seems that quite a few employees cranked up that radio and flashlight last Thursday night – and that made quite a difference. Employees were able to stay informed on the outage and light their way around the house.
Thank you, Jeff, and thank you, Airport Authority Employee Safety Committee – for all you do to help keep us safe!
