European Commission response after crash of German wings in French Alps in 2015 – lessons learned.

EU Transport Commissioner Violeta Vulc ordered a review after the Germanwings crash in the French Alps in March 2015. Because of the nature of the crash, believed at the time to have been caused by a co-pilot intent on committing suicide, the crash attracted a huge degree of media and public interest. A task force set up after the disaster has recommended improved psychological screening for new pilots to reduce the risk of a similar tragedy. Led by the European Aviation Safety Regulator, the panel of experts has called for the introduction of random drugs and alcohol testing of pilots and better
oversight of the Doctors responsible for their regular mental health checks.

The position in Ireland, one EU member state.

The Irish Health and Safety Authority (HSA) information on managing reasonable accommodation is that from a health and safety perspective, companies need to be confident that employees are not a risk to themselves or others. If managers perceive that there is a risk action should be taken to remove the employee from the risk.
