Aircraft Maintenance Technology - 35

However, optimal levels of safety cannot be achieved
through OSHA-compliant equipment alone. When left to
their own devices, aircraft personnel may unknowingly
make choices that place them and the company's equipment
in harm's way. For this reason, aerospace facility management should consider investing in educational programs
that inform staff about best practices.
While the frequency of educational programs will vary
depending upon a facility's needs and available resources,
these safety programs should cover a variety of topics,
touching on everything from ladder/platform maintenance
to proper ascension/descension techniques. For instance,
when using a rolling ladder or work platform, it is always
best to use a "buddy system." Trying to carry all the equipment for a job to top of the ladder or platform in one trip
is dangerous and often results in slips and falls. The likelihood of injury can be greatly reduced by having one person
on the facility's ground floor that hands tools and parts to
the technician on the ladder or platform. Additionally, this
approach drastically reduces the number of trips that an

employee needs to make up and down the ladder, increasing
task efficiency.
Given all the information that is available about OSHA regulations and best practices, it is easy to become overwhelmed when
working to ensure your company's compliance. If you are unsure
if your equipment meets OSHA's standards, do not hesitate to
consult with an expert. In addition to having a wealth of product
knowledge, these ladder and platform specialist can provide
insights into the content that should be included in a safety
training program. Their expertise can go a long way in helping
you create a safer, more productive work environment.
