We set up the first ever Unite Health &
Safety committee at Thomas Cook in recent years. There hasn’t been a dedicated
H&S committee in any of the legacy airlines and I’m confident that now we
are fully up and running we will begin to make a difference to the health,
safety, and welfare of all crew within the airline.
The H&S committee meets bi-monthly to
discuss current safety issues, changes in legislation, review any measures
taken to ensure health and safety of all employees, health and safety concerns,
review accident reports and trends arising from them, and work with the Company
when new practices or measures are to be implemented.
It is in everybody’s interest that this relatively
new committee is a success; however we will only be able to address issues that
we are made aware of. Therefore it is important for everybody to play their
part by completing accident reports and CSRs.
If you have a specific H&S concern,
please speak with one of the H&S reps or send a confidential email to: [email protected]
We look forward to updating you on our
progress. Please contact the rep at your base with any concerns / comments.
