DGCA Asks Employers to Address Duty Time for Maintenance Staff

On Feb. 6, India’s Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) issued an airworthiness advisory circular (AAC) No. 1 of 2012 directing maintenance providers to ensure maintenance personnel receive adequate rest.

The DGCA recommends that employers create internal policies that “scrupulously adhere” to an eight hour shift for maintenance workers, including breaks. It further advises that no shifts exceed 12 hours and suggests that company policies should consider the complexity of the work when scheduling personnel.

The AAC also outlines hazards that can arise from working while fatigued, and proposes several guidelines to manage fatigue risks and ensure that workers understand the dangers associated with fatigue.
