GHA using the newly designed Platform Ramp Ladder to access aircraft doors.
With this Universal Platform Ramp Ladder, the team effectively helped to minimise the risk of aircraft damage due to accidental contact with the JCPL. In addition, SATS also came up with a safer way to load, unload and transport ramp ladders, which was previously done with forklifts.
Awarded for Safety Awareness & Courageous Act – Individual from SIAEC
One early morning in June last year, Jumat from SIA Engineering Company (SIAEC) was performing towing operations when he realised that the undercarriage of the airtug he was operating had caught fire.
Thinking quickly, Jumat immediately disconnected his vehicle from the aircraft and positioned it at a safe distance, before proceeding to extinguish the fire swiftly with extinguishers available in his airtug. His vigilance and quick response helped to stop the escalation of the fire and kept damage to a minimum, before the Airport Emergency Service crew arrived on scene. When asked what went through his mind throughout the incident, Jumat replied, “I wanted to extinguish the fire as soon as possible, to avoid any damage to the customer’s aircraft. As I have been trained to use a fire extinguisher, once I found the source of fire, I put it out as soon as I could.”
