the years, AFA has fielded calls from members with medical conditions or
concerns, ranging from asthma to leukemia to multiple miscarriages. These
members want to know if we know of other flight attendants that have reported the
same problems, and in many cases, whether we have any information to suggest
that their conditions or concerns could be work-related.
there is very little available information on possible associations between
flight attendants' work environment and their health. In an attempt to address
this problem, AFA developed a health reporting system especially for flight
attendants. It is a voluntary, confidential, standardized registry for
reporting health problems that could be work-related - the Flight
Attendant Health Reporting System (FA-HRS).
How Does It Work?
you want to participate, you need to fill out two forms: the reporting form
and the privacy
policy. The reporting form includes basic questions about your work
history, your work environment, and your condition or concern. The privacy
policy needs to be signed and sent to AFA to show that you understand how your
information will be processed and maintained by AFA. To ensure your security,
we ask you to fax or mail the forms to a specific contact, either via the AFA
international office or directly to the Seattle field office. We do not accept forms sent across the
internet or email. For additional information, click hereor

office in Seattle by email
