In June 1996, The National Safety Council (NSC) launched National Safety Month in order to promote safe behaviors around the leading causes of preventable injuries and deaths at work, on the roads, and in our communities. 

As Safety Professionals, we live and breathe safety every day.  Our safety training, both annual and ongoing training, highlights how paying attention to details, following standard operating procedures (SOPs), and reporting concerns through appropriate channels keeps us and the passengers in our care safe.

The importance of safety and security is deeply etched into our culture; reminders have proven to be helpful in reinforcing the value of our safety reporting systems.  Safety reporting tools available to us include:

ISAP (Inflight Safety Action Program): ISAP is a long-standing program for reporting safety, regulatory issues and events that may come to your attention.  It is a voluntary, non-punitive, confidential way to report concerns.  Reports can include equipment issues, inadvertent errors, and proactive identification of potential safety concerns.

Flight Attendant Fatigue Report (FAFR): FAFR is the latest addition to United’s Inflight Reporting Systems.   FAFRs are a means by which we can report concerns of potentially fatiguing flights or flight sequences (pairings) as a way to decrease safety risks associated with Flight Attendants fatigue.

IOR (Irregular Operations Report): “Flight Attendants are required to submit an IOR documenting any incident involving customers, crewmembers or animals in the cabin that is out of the ordinary and/or that may require follow-up by the company.   The entire flight crew is responsible for filing a report.   This includes, but is not limited to safety, security, medical, regulatory, non-compliance, or pandemic related incidents. As part of your reporting, always check the box to include a copy to AFA.
