What is a Cabin Safety Inspector?
A cabin safety inspector in aviation plays a crucial role in ensuring the highest standards of safety and security within the aircraft cabin environment. They are responsible for inspecting and evaluating cabin safety procedures, equipment, and operations to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements. Cabin safety inspectors assess various aspects, including emergency evacuation procedures, cabin crew training, passenger safety briefings, and cabin equipment functionality.
