Flight time limitations: Stop overworking European aircrew!

Aircrew – pilots and cabin crew – require keen focus to avoid any accidents and react quickly if dangerous incidents occur. Flight time limitations are supposed to ensure that aircrew are sufficiently rested to undertake their work. ETF has always been in favour of European-wide flight time limitations for aircrew, and we bring expertise and experience to the rulemaking process.

safer skies

Aviation is a very safe form of transport, but accidents can be devastating. Aviation workers are experts on their industry, and they play a vital role in keeping passengers safe. In an emergency they are there to protect passengers. ETF works to ensure that all aviation workers have the training and rest needed for peak performance. We also bring workers’ perspectives to the international bodies which establish safety rules for the sector.

Sea fishing remains one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. We are working with our social partner, Europêche, to make it safer. We are developing guidelines on medical examinations and the recruitment of migrant fishers. We are also pushing EU member states to implement international agreements that will make our seas a better place to work.
