LOBO in use:
BAE Systems: Aviation
Aviation research, development & maintenance requires engineers to walk on top of military aircraft to access difficult to reach areas. This creates a health & safety problem that must be addressed. Existing aviation staging is not versatile enough as it is a fixed structure and does not adjust to meet different aircraft dimensions.
LOBO Systems’ safe and secure access platform product. The unique and patented clamp allows the system to be assembled by anyone who has undergone a certified LOBO training course into any size or shape. Engineers can reconfigure the system, adapting it from one project to another with ease, to create an aviation stand or fall protection system around any aircraft. By fitting wheel kits the system can be made mobile for fast deployment. The system can be assembled, disassembled and reassembled quickly without the use of tools. It can be flat packed and is easily transportable.
Being able to attach a guardrail from a lower level, before it is needed, ensures a safe system is built. This unique versatility of the LOBO System brings a safe working procedure to GM’s UAW, which not only meets OSHA requirements, but also meets GM’s tough safety policy. The use of a body harness can now also be revisited and under certain conditions relaxed completely. The LOBO System also brings cost reduction, enhanced efficiency & performance as maintenance crews can build their own platforms at any time. The LOBO System creates a safe working environment, which increases productivity and maximises the return on investment.
