Massachusetts Bay Commuter Rail Company Food & Beverage

MBCR Company has to implement a multi-purpose scaffolding, work platform product that must be OSHA compliant and allow MBCR Co’s maintenance personnel to work on top of their railway cars.

The job involves removing the air conditioning units from the top of the cars, and the solution had to be mobile and moved along to the next car. Also the work platform system has to provide safe access to the top of the cars and fall protection while working on top.

Traditional scaffolding is too heavy and cumbersome, while aluminium towers do not allow access on to the roof area as they cannot span and are not suitably versatile

LOBO Systems' safe and secure platform product was chosen as the solution. The unique and patented clamp allows the system to be assembled without the use of tools into any size or shape. This allows maintenance crews to attach a handrail across the carriage at any point across the roof area. A cantilever design was used to ensure there was no gap when walking form the LOBO System to the top of the railway car.

Optional wheels we added to provide mobility and the system was them rolled up and down the length of the train.
Personnel are not exposed to the risk of a fall during maintenance of the air conditioning units.

Handrails can be attached from a lower level, across the roof area, ensuring a safe system is built. This unique versatility of the LOBO System brings a safe working procedure to MBCR Co, which not only meets OSHA requirements, but also meets MBCR Co's safety policy.

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 maximizes the return on investment.
