Inadvertent slide deployments can cause serious or fatal injury to people in or around an aircraft. The financial impact of damage, flight delays or cancellation can be huge. A large part of these events is caused by cabin crew. Hence, the need for efficient procedures and training.
Strategies to prevent inadvertent slide deployment revolve mostly around proper use of onboard technology, robust SOPs, enhanced training to raise cabin crew awareness and how to apply counter-strategies to mitigate risks. There is no one size fits all solution and the toolkit offers a variety of recommended solutions.
