Overhead fall protection for aviation inspection, maintenance & repair
Whether in the hangar or on flight line, aviation technicians and mechanics often conduct their work well above the hangar floor and tarmac. Environmental conditions, hydraulic fluid, sloped fuselages, and narrow stabilizers can increase the risk of a fall when working on aircraft. Adding to the complexity of providing fall protection for aircraft are factors such as aircraft positioning, work on a variety of different aircraft, unique building structures and the need for limited work interruption during installation and usage. FLS' team of fall safety specialists and engineers take all of these factors and more into consideration when designing a fall protection solution.
Solutions for commercial, corporate, aircraft manufacturers and military bases often have different needs based on the level of maintenance and repair performed. Compliance with both OSHA 190, AFOSH and ANSI Z359 is necessary to have a compliant fall protection solution.
FLS offers a wide range of compliant solutions to provide fall protection for aircraft, both fixed wing and rotary. Our turnkey approach, including site visits, design and engineering, fabrication, installation, testing, certification, and training are performed in accordance with our ISO 9001:2015 certified quality management program.
