ADR: no risks for health
All parameters are well below regulatory limits. Aeroporti di Roma disclosed the report on analysis conducted by Dr. Massimo Gismondi, Occupational Medicine Officer of Aeroporti di Roma S.p.A.

Fiumicino, 11th May 2015 - Aeroporti di Roma disclosed the report on analysis conducted by Dr. Massimo Gismondi, Occupational Medicine Officer of Aeroporti di Roma S.p.A: "After the accident occurred on 7th May, ADR immediately started technical investigations for the detection of pollutants that could cause harm to airport operators and passengers' health. The company HSI Consulting has been appointed for this task. In a very short delay, samples were collected from the most critical points of T3. 

The results, which came in less than 24 hours, show that the values detected were definitely lower than national and international regulatory limits for workers exposed over an 8-hour shift.  ADR is carrying on its monitoring activity, with further exams that will be carried on in the next days.  Sample gathering will be done both close to the site of the accident and in remote areas, so as to safeguard everyone's health.

  We would like to specify that the symptoms reported by some people, such as eye and throat dryness and burning, are typical of those situations in which also minimal quantities of chlorinated substances linger in the ambient air.  These are simple irritations that can be easily treated by drinking if it affects the throat, or by using moistening eyedrops.  However, these conditions are absolutely temporary, and do not degenerate further".

 

Aeroporti di Roma, a company of Gruppo Atlantia, manages the airports of Rome Fiumicino and Ciampino, and conducts other collateral activities for airport facility management. Fiumicino operates four passenger terminals. It is dedicated to business and leisure flights to and from national, international and intercontinental destinations; Ciampino is mainly dedicated to low-cost airlines, express couriers and General Aviation activities. In 2014, ADR  airports system recorded around 44 million passengers, with over 230 destinations that can be reached from Rome thanks to the 100 airline operating from the two airports.
