BS ISO 6966-2:2014 pdf free.Aircraft ground equipment一Basic requirements一Safety requirements
Considerable importance is attached to having aircraft ground support equipment into which the essential safety aspects have been incorporated as part of the basic design (design to safety). It is particularly necessary when designing aircraft GSE to take into account the adverse conditions which frequently prevail in airport ramp areas, e.g. congested vehicle movement, exposure to weather, night operation, noise from aircraft and other vehicles, and difficult communications.
Design to safety should be based on a specific comprehensive risk assessment for each type of aircraft GSE, to be conducted by the manufacturer in accordance with ISO 14121-1. The retained design should be commensurate with the results of the risk assessment, as well as take into account, if applicable,each area of potential concern listed hereafter.
Design should aim at providing intrinsically safe equipment, i.e. one where potentially unsafe occurrences are prevented by basic design features such as equipment and components geometry, layout,or mode of operation, minimizing inasmuch as feasible the necessity to use additive safety devices or circuits. Where such additional devices or circuits dedicated to safety purposes cannot be avoided, risk assessment shall include an evaluation of any potential drawbacks or unforeseen additional hazards resulting from this addition.
All equipment or any component thereof, the failure of which could be hazardous, shall be designed to be fail-safe, or, where impractical, duplicated. In the event of duplication, each of the duplicated components shall separately be capable of safely performing its function in the event of its alternate’s failure.
Vehicle drivers and operators shall have clear and unimpaired visibility when travelling or operating the unit. The shape and arrangement of any driver’s or operator’s cabin shall not restrict the field of view for travel or operation. Where this cannot be achieved directly or through mirrors, other means such as closed-circuit TV shall be considered. There shall at least be mirrors designed and fitted in such a way that the driver is able to observe the rear sideward areas.
Any vehicle equipped with a windshield shall be provided with a powered windshield wiper giving a wipe area of no less than 60 % of the glazed area. A sun visor of suitable size shall be provided.Overhead view panels should also be fitted with wiping and, where climatic conditions require, defroster mechanisms.BS ISO 6966-2 pdf free.
