HSE guidance to baggage handling industry

HSE works alongside the aviation industry to help develop and provide guidance on baggage handling, and continues to stress the need for increased mechanical support.

Through HSE’s continued involvement with the airlines and ground handling companies, we were successful in convincing the International Air Transport Association (IATA) to introduce the new lower recommended individual bag weight of 23-25 kilos, introduced in the 2009 edition of the IATA Airport Handling Manual (AHM).
