Why Purchased?

The Ford Motor company originally purchased a LOBO System, for the St Louis Assembly Plant because it is quick and easy to assemble, light weight, OSH approved and built to a high quality.

At the Kansas City Assembly plant, Claycomo, Missouri, safety procedures were under review following an assessment and it was identified that a further requirement for the advanced platform system was required.

The Ford plant purchased a LOBO System for machinery maintenance and it had to comply to the necessary safety regulations and provide a safe working at height solution.

What are the applications?

It is in place and ready to use for equipment break downs where it is not possible to get a mobile elevated platform to, because of lack of access, and it is for this reason we like it. As a safety professional I need a product that meets our safety requirements, which it does.


Therefore, on that basis I would recommend the LOBO System together with the training course, which was to a good standard and we are hoping to book more courses in the future. Overall the product speaks for itself and we expect to use it more and more in the future as required.
