MEC Safety Health & Security
Back on October 17, 2019, United Vice President of Inflight, John Slater announced on Flying Together that United Airlines had signed a memorandum of understanding with our Union, Association of Flight Attendants (AFA) officially marking the rejoining of the Inflight Safety Action Program (ISAP).
Safety is the backbone of our industry and the primary reason Flight Attendants are on board the aircraft. We are safety professionals and the first responders in the sky. Rejoining the ISAP program encourages an open, confidential dialogue where Flight Attendants can self-disclose or report concerns to lead to improved safety conditions industry wide. The non-punitive nature of ISAP means Flight Attendants can feel confident providing their report without fear that a personal error will be penalized. This is a learning tool to improve safety.
Please carefully review the parameters for filing an ISAP to ensure you are protected by the provisions of the program and learn more about how an ISAP works to improve safety. If you have additional questions about the ISAP program contact your local Safety, Health and Security representative.
