financial crisis. COVID-19 has forced
several airlines across the globe to
restructure or cease operations.
The world economy is projected to
shrink nearly 4% in 2020. People will
be reluctant to travel or even book
travel - until there is a strong degree

of confidence that the health crisis
and associated risks are behind us.
The pandemic is a significant source of
anxiety, stress and uncertainty for almost
everyone. Among the magnitude of airline
industry challenges is the importance of
protecting worker health during the current

health), community level support (e.g., peer
support, coping with family situations such
as childcare and distance learning) and
organizational level support of the staff
well-being.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is
equipment that protects the user against
health or safety risks at work. Despite
engineering controls and safety systems in
place, some hazards might remain, and consequently, could cause injuries to the lungs,
the head and feet, the eyes, the skin and the
body. Common PPE can include items such
as a safety helmet, gloves, respiratory protective equipment, eye protection, hearing
protection, high-visibility clothing, safety
footwear and a safety harness. Individuals
must be trained to know at least the following: when PPE is necessary, what PPE
is necessary, how to properly put on, take
off, adjust and wear the PPE, the limitations
of the PPE and proper care, maintenance,
useful life and disposal of PPE. PPE keeps
Aircraft Maintenance Technicians (AMTs)
safe and healthy as aircraft maintenance
and repair poses many challenges and
include exposure to numerous hazards. PPE
varies with the job and task. For example,
safety glasses, a face shield and goggles protect your face and eyes, depending on the
task and materials.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought
new challenges to PPE use in aircraft maintenance operations. First, AMTs need to be
protected from coronavirus using certain
protection such as face masks or coverings
and disposable gloves. Secondly, using these
may interfere with other PPE (e.g., fogging
up the safety glasses) or cause communication difficulty (e.g., sound will be muffled, facial expressions will be concealed).
Thirdly, there is a strict requirement for
cleaning/disinfect re-usable PPE and sharable items such as fall protection PPE.
