Air Travel Expert Witnesses & Crew Safety

Air travel expert witnesses may consult on aviation safety problems, airport operations, pilot error, air traffic control, and more. The FAA, working with OSHA, issued a final policy last Thursday for improving workplace safety for aircraft cabin crew members. The August 22, 2013, press release states:
While the FAA’s aviation safety regulations take precedence, OSHA will be able to enforce certain occupational safety and health standards currently not covered by FAA oversight.
“Safety is our number one priority – for both the traveling public and the dedicated men and women who work in the transportation industry,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx.  “It’s important that cabin crew members on our nation’s airlines benefit from OSHA protections, including information about potential on-the-job hazards and other measures to keep them healthy and safe.”
