LOBO in use:
Balmoral Flat Roofing Ltd
Mansfield District Council have hundreds of flat roofs within their housing stock, which require periodic maintenance and have a duty of care to ensure all contractors have a safe system for working at height.
The Working at Height 2005 regulations state that work equipment or other measures, to prevent falls, when working at height should be used.
Balmoral Roofing contacted LOBO Systems to arrange a product demonstration. Following a successful meeting Balmoral Roofing decided to invest in two edge protection systems, sized to provide edge protection to most of the councils flat roofs.
Training was provided to 8 of Balmoral’s roofing staff to ensure competency in assembling the LOBO System as an edge protection system.
The LOBO System created a safe working at height edge protection system and provided the training to satisfy Mansfield District Council’s safety requirements.
The Cost of the LOBO System in this case was £4540 which included local training. An analysis of the investment compared to the cost saving revealed major cost savings. A quote from the management at Balmoral;
“Balmoral has a contract with many major Councils and is now saving £2000 per week, the lads love the product, it’ s easy to use and very quick. I expect to save £96000 this year by not using out sourced scaffolders.”
