SE082: Turbulence Injury Reduction – Galley Handholds - Retrofit


The purpose of this Safety Enhancement is to reduce turbulence injuries to flight attendants (FAs) and passengers through improved situational awareness, turbulence encounter management procedures (before, during and after encounter), enhanced communication and identification and installation of effective cabin design safety features. SE082 calls for:

  1. The evaluation of currently-available handholds to select those most cost-effective for retrofit installation, and
  2. The installation of the recommended products into legacy aircraft..

This safety enhancement is not currently on the CAST Plan, but might be included in the future. In that event, the attached Implementation Plan would be revised prior to inclusion.
