HAWK, it should be the Authorities requirements met first, i.e- in UK EASA PART-145 facility requirements and then the desires of they guys on shift, TV's , kettle, oven, microwave, sofas, showers, telephones, mobiles, VHF radios on company frequency, workshops etc etc. Do you guys get audited out there ?

The Regulatory Authorities requirements are in Black & white & are followed to the last detail.I was more keen on the other more personal equipment Individual wise.

Quoting A/c train (Reply 1):

Every Six months by Internal Flight Safety,Quality control Dept & DGCA.
There is a check list which is followed as stated above so its no difficulty to stick to what is the rule.What is your Auditing frequency like.

At AS, we used SuperFlux (ZEP) cleaner. At WN, we used the foam spray, I forgot the name of it.

8.Safety shoes

At AS, they were not allowed. I think it has to do with the liability issue, or so Im told. I was once told "Would you rather break your toes or lose your toes?" 'Nuff said. At WN, I never worn them, neither did the mechnics either. I dont know their policy on that though.

HAWK I always wondered why do you always ask questions about the 757 do you own your own airline or something? I run the stores in JFK for VS but you might need a little bit more than that....any engine parts? Dont forget gear pins and pens in case you forget yours home ( it happens alot ) .

Major Maintenance out here normally involves usage of Equipment & moving of heavy units hence safety shoes is very critical out here.

I can certainly understand that. At AS, it was either a company policy and/or a union rule forbidding the use of steel toed shoes on the hangar floor and on the line. I never questioned this rule in depth.

This reflects to the "old" steel reinforced safety shoes which indeed can cut your toes of under certain conditions.
We use safety shoes with plastic(of some kind) reinforcement and they are mandatory according our so called ARBO law.
After my big toe was fattened ones by a a/c stairs I don't go without them no more.

What type Plastic

Can't find the papers anymore, they come with a certificate here if they have the EU quality mark(CE).
These days there are many different types like toe protection with Steel, Aluminum, Composite, Plastic etc.....
Anyway they are divided in different classes like 1,2 and 3........ don't know exactly.
Class 1 might be required for light mechanical work, 2 for heavy mech. work and 3 for wood loggers or something.
Then within the different classes there are many different requirements like ESD, Oil resistant, Slip resistant, Penetration resistant and so on........

This is what I wear inside the avionics shop as required by regulations(JAR/FAR 145)
http://www.romex.nl/prd/prd_esd_det....rap_sandalen_klompen_slippers_Bata
Not the smartest thingies but the door simply won't open without them so...........

This is what I wear for Hangar and platform duties, steel nose and steel inlay, slip, oil, heat and penetration resistant..... the whole lot.
http://www.dealersupport.org/voorbee...83F5/703l/10118.3678817A/html.aspx
Of course when a 747 runs over your toes they will be lost.......... without steel they would be anyway  Smile

When it comes to safety I think there is no simple "yes" or "no" just do some searching and you will find it is easy to make a study of shoes and safety alone.
You will still be able to find people who don't wear safety belts in the car even though it is proven over and over again that they will safe you from serious injury 98% of the cases.
With safety shoes it is the same story, they will safe your toes in 98% of the incidents but a 100 ton load is to much even for a steel safety shoe and you will loose your toes but then again without them.................
Personally I am around in the aviation world for 27 years and for 25 I was like the above mentioned guys, I was even wearing sandals on a hot day Big grin
Until that half a second I was distracted and found my big toe half as thick but twice as wide, I didn't have much to smile............... for a year.(and it was only about 1000kg, a piece of cake for any modern safety shoe)
Like it takes a solid car crash to make people think again about wearing a safety belt.

Oh..... and when the Boss makes a comment like "do you want flat toes or no toes" he just means "I am not willing to pay for your protection".
My advice: be wise and do it your self, you only got one set of toes.

ARBO is a Dutch law and in English would be something like Work Environment Law, it basically describes what the minimum safety requirements are for any given profession(which means that the boss has to pay for  Smile ).

The door to the avionics shop is connected to measuring equipment.
You simply put both feet on a plate which is connected to a device where you have to press on with your thumb, if you are measured safe the door will open if not it will stay closed.
It just one of those regulations for component repair like we also have Humidity control(at leat 60% if I remember right), temperture control(between 18 and 22 ºC), dust control(clean room cat.2 I believe), conducting floor, desktops and chairs, ESD over coats etc....etc....etc........

The correct conductivity to make sure you don't enter the shop while statically charged.
Also to make sure if any charge is build up while at work(due to walking, moving etc) it will dissipate thru your shoes and the floor which of course is also conducting and grounded(although for safety reasons it does have a 1 meg. Ohm resistance)

Currently We are using the Normal Notebook with CD-Rom & Wireless data card for access to MyBF.com ,but will be upgrading to the Water resistant notebooks this year.Considering the rains out here its needed.
