Ground Operations involves all aspects of aircraft handling at the airport as well as aircraft movement around the aerodrome except when on active runways. The safety challenges of ground operations are partly to do directly with those operations, for example ensuring that aircraft are not involved in collisions and that the jet efflux from large aircraft does not hazard small ones. Even more important, ground operations are about preparing aircraft for departure in such a way that the subsequent flight will be safe too, for example correct loading of cargo and baggage, sufficient and verified fuel of adequate quantity and quality and the correct use of ground de/anti icing facilities where appropriate.
