The employees of LS Airport Services - Magdalena Chojnowska, Piotr Popławski and Łukasz Berzyński from Handling Warsaw Branch - have been awarded in the international competition "Pride of Ground Handling Awards". The results of the competition were announced during yesterday's online final gala.
"Unsung Hero Award" and "Ramp Safety Award" are the competition categories in which Magdalena, Piotr and Łukasz represented LSAS and Poland. This year's edition of the competition attracted over 100 entries from all over the world, which makes us even more pleased that the attitude of our employees has been appreciated by the international jury.
Magdalena Chojnowska and Piotr Popławski, awarded in the category of "Unsung Hero Award", were recognized for their exemplary rescue action on the apron of Chopin Airport, when one of the passengers, while going up the stairs to the plane, lost consciousness and fell to the ground. Magdalena and Piotr immediately took action - they notified the appropriate medical and airport services about the incident, gave first aid and resuscitated the passenger. Magdalena and Piotr demonstrated great empathy, professionalism, knowledge of health and safety procedures, and composure in a stressful situation. Thanks to their actions, the passenger's life was saved.
Łukasz Berzyński, awarded in the "Ramp Safety Award" category, on his own initiative performed calculations checking the correctness of ready-made manual balancing sheets (loadsheet) received from the manufacturer for all types of aircraft in the fleet of one of our customers. Lukasz's calculations confirmed compliance for all but one aircraft model. Lukasz's calculations were sent to the carrier, who confirmed their correctness with a declaration that the reported error will be immediately corrected. Thanks to Łukasz's great knowledge and accuracy, it was possible to detect an anomaly that could have significantly affected safety.
