metadata.conference.dc.description.abstract: In aviation maintenance, workers usually work in tight spaces to maintain or repair aircraft. These constricted spaces provide uncomfortable feeling to these workers and in return the workmanship of the workers declined in terms of quality and thus affect the safety of the aircraft. However, some workers are fit enough to go through these conditions without hassle or without much pain. This paper focused upon female aviation workers and collected data on their rate of perceived exertion pertaining to two selected aviation workspaces. The data and analyses showed that those who are fit felt less exertion while those who are not fit felt more exertion. This paper then recommended several physical exercises to increase their fitness and in turn reduce the exertion felt.
