Dear Members,

Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP)

 

Scheduled to launch Monday, February 18th

 

Flight Attendant Handbooks are in your mailbox now.

 

The Association of Flight Attendants (AFA), US Airways and the FAA have through a cooperative effort established the Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP). The program compliments those programs that are already in existence, Pilots, Maintenance and Dispatch at US Airways. ASAP is a voluntary, non-punitive, self-reporting safety program designed to identify and reduce possible safety concerns. Through your reporting of a possible violation or safety issue we can better understand operational deficiencies; non-compliance with regulations, deviations from company policies and procedures, and unusual events. As a safety professional and first responder we encounter many safety hazards during the course of our working day, we now have the opportunity to address those concerns directly to the company and the FAA without fear of discipline. All reports submitted are de-identified (all names are removed) and forwarded to the Event Review Committee (ERC). If the report meets the acceptance criteria and is accepted, the ERC will review, investigate and analyze the report. The information gained is used to make recommendations to policy and procedures, to help identify and correct individual and industry wide safety problems. Without your help many safety concerns may go unknown. The recognition and understanding of safety issues will help us achieve the highest level of safety.

 

Within the on-line reporting process you will have the ability to send a de-identified copy of your report to NASA-ASRS (Aviation Safety Reporting System). NASA-ASRS is the world’s largest repository of voluntary, confidential safety information provided by aviation’s frontline personnel. It is an actively managed system that tracks and trends reports for safety hazards within the industry. If a safety hazard is trended ASRS has the ability to notify the aviation industry. NASA-ASRS estimates they will have processed up to 80,000 reports for 2012. Because NASA ASRS is an actively monitored data stream that identifies aviation hazards found in submitted reports AFA encourages you to click "Yes" and send your report to NASA-ASRS.

 

All Handbooks have been delivered and are in your mailboxes. The handbook will further explain what the ASAP program entails and how to report. Look for your ERC members in the near future at your base, we will be there to introduce ourselves and discuss the program with you.
