S.A.F.E. Structure Designs is reminding everyone to think about safety while maintaining aircraft.
This spring season shows many aircraft in for extended maintenance due to a halt or slowdown in operations and government restrictions with the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This is the time to remain vigilant on safety. Consider the following recommendations:
- Wear the right gear
- Don’t rush
- Manage fatigue
- Manage tools
- Maintain situational awareness
- Use approved procedures and parts
- Finish all steps
- Use the correct equipment and fall protection for the work
“We know everyone is concerned about health right now and we wish all aircraft operators and their families a healthy and swift end to the COVID-19 slowdown,” said Johnny Buscema, CEO of S.A.F.E. “We also want to remind the mechanics to be safe.
