Airport health and safety is regulated by HSE (Health and Safety Executive), HSENI (Health and Safety Executive Northern Ireland and the CAA (Civil Aviation Authority). These bodies have to regulate the health and safety of both passengers and airport staff and crew, both in the aircraft and in the terminal.

Within the terminal there can be a large number of people in the same place at the same time. Getting them from A to B as safely as possible is very important. Walkways and signage should be clearly visible. Any trip hazards or spillages clearly signed so passers by are notified of the danger. Outside the terminal, staff are on hand to assist with the use of buses and other transport to and from the aircraft. Staff are usually identified with a hi-viz jacket, which protects them as well as the passengers.

Manual handling is a big health and safety issue, with ground staff at the airport loading heavy luggage to and from the aircraft, and passengers stowing luggage in the over head lockers, lifting it up and bringing it down.

On board the aircraft, there is clear signage with relation to wearing your seatbelt during take off and landing as well as safety doors and windows.
