Health & social affairs

The well-being of every single member of staff is very close to our heart. That’s why we act with the appropriate foresight. Bearing the demographic change in mind, Cologne Bonn Airport attaches great importance to preventative health measures since in an ageing society the protection of health must be of increasing importance. We have to minimize stress and impacts on health and avoid risks as best we can.

Occupation Health and Safety

Safety First!

Classical occupational health and safety includes accident prevention, analyses of workstations with monitors, risk assessments, a catalogue of hazardous materials, radiation protection, dangerous goods consultation. And we go a step further: after all, providing ground services for aircraft is still strenuous physical work. Here the Airport Company, Flughafen Köln Bonn GmbH, tries to find alternative solutions. 

To this end the working group “Innovative technical working equipment” has been set up. Vacuum lifts are now used for loading luggage and moving conveyor belts – power stows - are used to limit the physical exertion.
