Abstract

Aircraft deicing technicians who work in open baskets endure physical strain and exposure to health and safety risks. This study aims to identify the tasks that are particularly strenuous and to measure the rela-tionship between aircraft model and physical fatigue. To do this, the study synchronizes video recordings and the data collected by biometric vest to correlate the tasks of 12 subjects with their heart rate. Based on these da-ta, the resting heart rate (RHR) and steady state limit (SSL) are calculated. The results of this study identify the following tasks as fatiguing: spraying de/anti-icing fluids, moving the basket and truck and deicing ground con-trol. Also, the type of aircraft that causes the most physical fatigue is the tail-engine plane.
