Flight attendant workplace issues could include exposure to noise and bloodborne pathogens and access to information on hazardous chemicals. The FAA and OSHA say they will continue to identify additional conditions where OSHA requirements could apply.

Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis noted that the policy “will not only enhance the health and safety of flight attendants by connecting them directly with OSHA but will, by extension, improve the flying experience of millions of airline passengers.” A 30-day comment period extends through the end of December.
