Successful Safety Fair turnout

Thank you to everyone who supported our Safety Fair on May 9 in Terminal 1 to explore our airport safety programs, learn about new advancements in health, safety and security and network with colleagues and Pearson partners.

We collaborated with business units across the GTAA and the airport community. The spirit of the safety fair is to elevate the employee experience through education, advocacy, communication and promotion of safe and secure airport operations in conjunction with wellbeing.

Shoutout to our FOD Walk participants

Thank you to all the Toronto Pearson employees who participated in our foreign object debris (FOD), walks on Friday, May 10 at Terminals 1, 3 and Cargo West. We had over 85 participants helping to pick up foreign object debris keep our runways safe. Prevention and proper disposal of FOD helps mitigate injuries and damages to aircrafts and our FOD Walk was a great initiative to give back while getting to know your fellow co-workers!
