Pre- Arrival

Ramp team conducts pre-arrival safety briefing

Ramp team wearing safety vest?

Ramp team wearing hearing protection

Operational safety zone (OSZ) clear before aircraft arrival?

Pre arrival FOD walk performed?

Jet bridge stowed properly (Designated spot/ fully retracted)

Ground support equipment serviceable and staged for arrival

Ground power cord stored properly when not in use

Wheel chocks used to delineate stop mark?



Marshaller in position for arrival (maintains contact with flight crew and wing walkers)

Marshaller utilizes proper hand signals

Marshaller utilizes self parking system and stands by emergency shut off

Marshaller uses safety wands for arrival ( lighted wands 30 minutes before sunset - 30 minutes after sunrise or when visibility is restricted due to weather conditions)

Wing-walker(s) in position to receive aircraft ( maintains visible contact with Marshaller and in position to observe any threats)
As applicable- Some international locations do not utilize wing walkers due to airport restrictions

Wing walker uses appropriate hand signals (clear or stop)

Wing walker uses appropriate wands for arrival ( lighted wands 30 minutes before sunset - 30 minutes after sunrise or anytime visibility is restricted due to weather conditions)

Aircraft parked correctly on designated stop mark

No GSE operated in OSZ during aircraft arrival process

Securing Aircraft

Securing Aircraft

Personnel does not approach aircraft until safe to approach signal has been given by Marshaller

Nose landing gear (NLG) is properly chocked when aircraft comes to a complete stop on the designated line ( chocks should be touching the aircraft wheel, if new UA chocks are used "UNITED" should be visible

Aircraft is properly chocked ( NLG and two main gear, when high winds are predicted or present (above 25 knots) all landing gear will be chocked fwd and aft)

Crews properly positioned wing tip markers at the aircraft (scimitar wing tips utilize a triangle design for wing tip markers)

Marshaller / designee gave Jet bridge operator clear to approach signal

Crew performed an arrival walk around of the aircraft ( walk around must be completed within 15 minutes after aircraft blocking in) RSM chapter 5

Servicing equipment does not enter OSZ until aircraft has been chocked and clear to approach signal has been given

Safety guidelines for external ground power utilized (RSM chapter 5 )

Safety guidelines followed for conditioned air usage (RSM chapter 5)

Connecting/ dis-connecting Ground Power

Jet bridge mounted ground power cable is lowered all of the way to the ground

Jet bridge mounted ground power cable if detached from ground power cable/hoist the harness must be safely stowed

Tow around units positioned outside OSZ for aircraft arrival

For GPU units - no three point connections

For GPU the orange sock is placed over the tow tongue when cable is in use

For GPU cable is removed from the aircraft and stowed before tow tractor is connected to the unit

When power cord is attached to the aircraft a relief strap or brackets must be used to support the power cord
