Welcome to CASW 2022
The seventh annual Canadian Airports Safety Week (CASW) 2022 begins today. This year YYC will participate alongside 17 other Canadian airports by hosting events throughout the week to reinforce healthy and safe work practices among airport employees.
Our goal is to educate and engage our airport community to strengthen safety-minded behaviours through daily initiatives during the week and continue improving our safety culture beyond CASW. Participate in activities throughout the week to reinforce your knowledge of safety practices, recommit to our guiding principle, “See Something. Say Something.” and maybe even win a prize!
We invite you to join us at events throughout the week:
