Overview
It is the policy of ABX Air, Inc. to ensure that a safe, hazard-free and secure environment is created in the workplace. The management of ABX Air, Inc. is committed to eliminating hazards, minimizing potential risks, and maintaining a secure work environment through our policies, procedures, and the diligent use of risk analysis.

To meet this commitment, a Safety Management System (SMS) is maintained to identify hazards and manage safety risks. To identify these risks, ABX Air encourages safety reporting through SMS Pro at www.abxsafety.com, the Safety Hotline at 800-366-3000, by email to abxsafety@abxair.com or the WeTip Hotline at 800-782-7463.

Core Requirements
The ABX Air, Inc. Core Value of Safety states: "We are serious about Safety. Our objective is 100 percent accident free. We care for one another and always practice safe work habits. No person will be put at risk to achieve our goals."

ABX Air, Inc. fully supports all regulatory requirements regarding safety and security and will provide a safe, secure and healthy working environment.

ABX Air, Inc. will provide an active, positive accident prevention program. A goal of this program is to identify unsafe acts and conditions, and will eliminate or reduce their results.

ABX Air, Inc. will not penalize or discipline any person that brings what he or she views as a genuine safety concern to the attention of management or a fellow employee. Safety of flight related concerns may be submitted via SMS Pro confidentially or anonymously. Non-safety of flight concerns may be reported via the Safety Report Form on ABXNET. Also via SMS Pro, FAA-certificated pilots and mechanics may submit confidential ASAP reports to anonymously disclose safety concerns or FAR violations along with suggestions on how to prevent future errors. For accepted ASAP reports, this confidential program is non-punitive and the FAA encourages participation.
