9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.
OSHA in the Aircraft Cabin

Presented by: Gregory P. Ripple, Miller Johnson
Changing course after nearly 40 years, the FAA and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have decided that OSHA has jurisdiction over aircraft in operating under Part 91, 121, or 135. Although OSHA's jurisdiction in the cabin is still limited to several discrete areas, operators must ensure that they comply with these OSHA requirements and that their cabin crews have been properly trained. We'll discuss blood-borne pathogens and the steps that need to be taken to minimize the hazard they present on board and what companies and employees need to know about noise abatement and hazard communication. We'll also look ahead at other areas where OSHA may be granted jurisdiction in the future and how OSHA will use this new power.

Passenger Expectations of First Responders

What should you expect from your rescue first responders when facing an emergency situation?

This training is oriented around the correct use of the equipment available and what to expect from the rescue providers. John Isbell has 22 years experience as a U.S. Coast Guard rescue swimmer.
