removing and installing Recirculation Air
Filters across Boeing models now requires
hooded disposable coveralls, non-vented
safety goggles and N95/99/100 respirator
in addition to disposable safety gloves.
Once removed, the old filter needs to be
immediately placed in a plastic bag and
tape sealed. The technicians will disinfect
the plenum before installing the new filter.
All tools used for filter replacement must be
disinfected. Upon completion of the task,
PPE needs to be tape sealed in a bag. The
bags with old filter and PPE need to be discarded per airline, local health, safety and
regulatory procedures.
Face coverings are required at all
Boeing facilities in the US. Per CDC guidance, cloth face coverings should fit snuggly but comfortably against the side of the
face. It should fully cover both the nose
and mouth and be secured with ties or ear
loops. The face covering should allow for
breathing without restriction and can be
washed and machine dried without damage or change to its shape. Cloth face coverings should not be worn near an open
flame (e.g., during welding). Conventional
face coverings turned out to pose a big
challenge for deaf and hard-of-hearing
employees because seeing someone's
face is essential for them to understand
co-workers and conduct business. Facial

language rely on hearing aids and lip
reading to communicate with others.
Facial expressions are equally necessary for those who communicate using
