AFA Safety Committee Update – Face Shield Approval
July 16, MEC Air safety health and security committee
Hello Fellow Flight Attendants,
I’m writing in regards to some Health and Safety topics.
First, FAA has approved face shields for our protection. Face shields are to be worn in conjunction with face masks. It’s an additional layer of PPE, if we choose. ( Please read the stipulations from management regarding logos, color, etc.)
FAA has also extended the jump seat/ safety demo protections. AFA will adhere to all FAA mandates.
Lastly, please remember that if you are assigned any Canadian flying, you will have to get your temperature checked at the gate before boarding.
Please report all concerns/ issues via the Report It App. The more reports, the better data for our work group and if you choose to write management an email please cc in AFA Representatives, so there is documentation.
Your AFA Air Safety, Health and Security Committee
