Because valuable evidence may be lost during cleaning.
Explain three characteristics of the supply system that determined the need to break the system into segments.
First the supply system is worldwide. This suggests manageable segments on a geographical basis. Second, the supply mission depends on the performance of specialized functions, such as storage, distribution, and disposal. This suggests manageable segments on a functional basis. Third, the system contains millions of items that vary in size, use, complexity, and value. This suggests manageable segments based on a classification system.
it’s a 13-digit number that identifies an item in the national supply system.
The first position identifies the expendability of the item; the second position identifies the highest authorized repair level; and the third position identifies the cost category.

What types of precautions should you take when you’re working with oxygen?
Keep oxygen equipment clean and free of moisture, oil and grease; use anti seize tape for oxygen fitting, and never park oxygen carts in areas that are sodded, grassy, or asphalt covered or in buildings. Parking LOX carts in hangars, nose docks, or other buildings is prohibited; they must be a specified distance from these structures.
What safety radius is prescribed for personnel not involved with servicing oxygen?
The types are gaseous (O2) and liquid oxygen (LOX). O2 is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas, slightly heavier than air.
Gaseous nitrogen (N2) is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas, slightly lighter than air. It’s inert and does not react with other substances nor will it support combustion. Liquid nitrogen (LIN) is a colorless, odorless liquid which exists in the liquid state only at an extremely low temperature (–196C or –320.8F).
It’s not necessary to ground or bond nitrogen servicing carts, anyone not involved with servicing operations should stay outside a 20-foot radius, and only qualified personnel will operate nitrogen equipment or service aircraft systems.

(2) Don’t wear metallic objects such as rings, identification tags, necklaces, wristwatches, glasses with metal rims, or bracelets;
(3) Don’t bring metallic measuring instruments, metal cased objects, or metal tools near energized electrical circuits;
(4) Don’t depend upon friction tape or rubber tape on the handles of tools;
The path of the current, duration of current flow, condition of skin, and the area of contact.
The body paths of current are a vital factor, and any route involving the heart or brain is extremely dangerous. Placing one hand behind the back reduces the possibility of current passing in one hand through the heart or respiratory system and out the other hand.
Explain the harmful effects of electrical shock to the human body.
Damage to nerve tissue, personality changes, amnesia, mental inertia, blood vessel disease, cataracts, destruction of the pancreatic tissue, and heart conditions.
The metal oxide film used as a dielectric is very thin; hence the smallest ESD blows a hole in the dielectric damaging the component.
Use containers made of barrier material conforming to TO specifications. If cushioning is required, pack with a static-free conductive material. Ensure each container has an ESD caution marker attached and keep equipment in containers until ready to use.
Awareness. When people are informed of hazardous materials and controls, they’ll be less likely to be injured by the physical and health hazards present.
