This paper explains that the implemention of the aviation safety action programs (ASAP) recommended by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for flight attendants and other aviation employees is vital in optimizing aviation safety. The plan is an encouraging rather than a threatening program, which focuses on improvement rather than liability. The author points out that the flight attendants themselves have reacted positively to these programs. The paper highlights that, in addition to safety benefits, the ASAP for flight attendants has revealed shortcomings in vital areas of training, has built employee-management trust, and has provided a connection between policy and procedure for flight attendants.
From the Paper:"Indeed, according to reports, the implementation of ASAPs have resulted in greater employee compliance with written rules and regulations, as employees are more aware of how these connect with the mechanism of aviation safety. As such, employees experience a greater understanding of the complicated business of aviation, as well as how each individual's duties contribute to its smooth operation. This is particularly so in the case of flight attendants. Submitted reports are circulated to flight attendants, some of whom specifically benefit from them."
