New IOD Reporting Process – LAA/LUS
APFA has been informed that American Airlines has partnered with Sedgwick to change the process to report an Injury on Duty (IOD).
Beginning January 1, 2018, LUS and LAA Flight Attendants will be able to immediately report an IOD 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling:
Calls will be answered by a registered nurse who will:
1) Assess and recommend appropriate medical care options
2) Complete the report regarding your IOD and send you the AA IOD brochure
Twenty-four to forty-eight hours after the call, you will receive an automated satisfaction survey. We recommend that you complete the survey based on your experience.
Effective January 1, 2018, the process for IOD reporting will be the same for both LAA and LUS.
LAA Flight Attendants will no longer be required to report their injury to a Flight Service Manager .
LUS Flight Attendants will no longer be required to complete an online IOD report (aka. old Safety Event Report (SER).)
