Winnipeg Airports Authority closely monitors the use, storage, handling, and disposal of hazardous materials to meet or exceed federal and provincial regulations. WAA tenants and operators must also meet or exceed the requirements.
The use of hazardous products at airports is low by industrial standards and WAA continues to substitute non or less-hazardous products where possible.
Prevention of spills
Initiatives are in place to prevent the release of hazardous substances and to respond appropriately if an accidental release occurs. WAA maintains a detailed log of all spills and follows remedial procedures set by federal, provincial, and municipal authorities.
WAA also offers educational tools and training to ensure employees are familiar with spill response procedures.
