Aviation group weighs in on OSHA aircraft oversight

In comments submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) has raised questions about an FAA proposal to allow OSHA oversight in aircraft cabins. According to the group, “The FAA proposal raises the specter of additional oversight and regulation of business aircraft operations.”

The NBAA says the FAA plan does not specify “the full scope of OSHA regulations that could be applied to aircraft cabins.” For example, the FAA has not defined how standards relating to noise and bloodborne pathogens would apply.

The Association stated, “Until the FAA is able to identify a complete list of OSH standards that would apply and ensure that those standards have considered the regulatory impact on small businesses, it would be inappropriate to apply this proposed policy to other noncommercial or on-demand commercial operations.”

Another concern is that the proposal does not specify if pilots who leave the flight deck to perform cabin and passenger safety duties would be considered cabin crew.
