Canada Labour Code Part II

124 Every Employer shall ensure that the health and safety at work of every person employed by the employer is protected.

Duties of Employees

DID YOU KNOW?

We often hear from members who’ve worked a whole flight without eating. This should never be the case! Our manual and training describe the seriousness of hypoglycemia, a condition defined by low blood sugar levels that can affect anyone.

REMEMBER:

The FAM Chapter 2 prioritizes a crew meal at any time a crew member indicates a medical requirement for food. If you haven’t eaten, and are feeling faint, dizzy or abnormally irritable, take the time make the time - to refuel yourself with a meal or snack.

SOLIDARITY:

Remember that we all have different diets and metabolisms. Just because you aren’t hungry, doesn’t mean your colleagues shouldn’t be. Work crew meals into your briefing, and respect a colleague’s need to eat if it arises – even if it’s not the most opportune time. We cannot support one another, and certainly can’t provide excellent customer service, if we are in a diminished physical state.

Have you been “coached” following an incident or injury?
