Chan School of Public Health are collecting data to help understand how occupational exposures impact the health of crew. This is REALLY important for anyone who flys as the long term impacts are still not fully understood! 🔐The survey is completely confidential - it is IRB security protected so your identity is not known and all of your information will never be shared with the public or your employer. ⚠️Why am I telling you this? The last Harvard study conducted in 2007(in the U.S) highlighted that cabin crew had several major health related issues, which became more prominent the longer they remained in the occupation. These included: • The prevalence of respiratory disease amongst flight attendants was approximately three times that found in the general U.S. population. • In addition, sleep disorders, fatigue, depression and heart disease were greatly increased in female Flight Attendants compared to the U.S. population. • Female flight attendants reported 34% more reproductive cancers. • Health conditions that increased with longer job tenure as a flight attendant were chronic bronchitis, heart disease in females, skin cancer, hearing loss, depression and anxiety, even after adjusting for age, gender, BMI, education, and smoking. ✅I would encourage crew to take the survey, it doesn’t take longer than 30 mins, and with enough participants could lead to changes in legislation around flying and hopefully improved working conditions 🤞🏼 📍Please tag any of your fellow ex or current crew members too! 🔍You can download the full report taken from 2007 to see the results for yourself and to fill in the survey just type into your web search “Harvard study flying” - it’s the first link!
