What you should know to stay safe on your flight

Whether you travel regularly for work or leisure, or you board an occasional flight,  it is crucial that you understand what you can do to stay safe on the plane. Knowledge of potential safety issues may be extremely helpful in certain situations. Although it may be unlikely that an airplane accident occurs, you can be prepared to face a hazardous situation and minimize the risk of injury or death.

If an emergency should occur, it is unlikely that you will have a chance to retrieve your overhead carryon. It is best to have a separate bag with the essentials, such as your passport, wallet, medication, credit cards and your phone, in a small bag or pack that is with you at all times. Also, make sure that you avoid wearing high heels, dresses or other clothes or accessories that may get caught or inhibit your ability to exit the plane if necessary.

Keep an eye on your surroundings and what is going on around you. This means counting the number of rows between you and the closest exit and observing your neighbors. It also may require you to listen to the announcements. This will help you become more familiar with the plane and how to use the safety devices if needed. Be sure to listen to the flight attendants, as they may have critical information regarding the flight. If you bring a laptop or some other electronic device on board, make sure you backup all of your information prior to boarding.
