ESD is more harmful than many in the
aviation maintenance industry realize.
Because it's difficult to see and feel the
damage occurring, injuries might not be
perceptible. Over time, this can result in
hidden yet significant trauma.
To improve worker safety, facilities that
contain electrostatically sensitive products,
equipment and supplies must use
certified ESD equipment to protect their
employees and safeguard their products
from damage.
The Importance of Ergonomics
If fatigue, pain and injury restrict operator
productivity and decrease the enjoyment
of everyday life at work, home or during
leisure activities, it negatively impacts an
entire organization.
Employees who understand ergonomics
recognize when they are given
instruments that provide the best results
for their health and safety. It can encourage
a culture of care and safety where employees
feel appreciated.
When aviation technicians can use
quality, ergonomic tools, the instances of
fatigue and injury decrease, lost time and
increased claim costs diminish, and overall
operator health and satisfaction contribute
to a better, safer work environment.
