Aviation industry deals with more than thousands of people and also spending millions of funds in order to meet the requirements, satisfy the necessities of people and to produce state-of-the-art aircraft. With its objective it is significant to consider the hazards involved and bring out an output with the least extent and under control risks to prevent any loss in terms of life and even profit.
In this study, the aim is to provide information and knowledge more on aircraft maintenance safety precautions and procedures in dealing with ground handling, general maintenance like working at height, working in confined spaces, moving suspended loads, aircraft refuelling or de-fuelling, ground de-icing/anti-icing and so on.
D. Give detailed information about the safety precaution about the types and use of fire extinguisher equipment
Fire extinguishers are portable fire equipment which plays a vital role in any place since there are under circumstances that fire fighters are not absolutely essential wherein extinguishers are capable to fight the fire.
