Arriva must implement a multi-purpose scaffolding work platform system that must be HSE/OSHA compliant and allow Arriva’s personnel to work on top of their railway carriages. Traditional scaffolding is too heavy and cumbersome, while aluminium towers do not allow access on to the roof area as they cannot span.
LOBO Systems’ safe and secure platform product. The unique and patented clamp allows the system to be assembled without the use of tools into any size or shape.
Maintenance crews can attach a handrail around the carriage or at any point across the roof, from a lower level. This ensures a safe system is assembled while personnel are not exposed to the risk of a fall during assembly while using the system for maintenance.
The unique versatility of the LOBO System brings a safe working procedure to Arriva, which not only meets OSHA requirements, but also meets Arriva’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.
LOBO’s electroplated steel structure ensures many years of product lifeand a system that will not shake or rattle. The modularapproach means components fully integrate and can be hand carried.
Fully constructed systems can also be made mobile by the addition of wheels.
Experience shows that deploying the LOBO system reduces the costs associated with hiring scaffolding and constructing bespoke fixed access systems. By reducing your reliance on out-sourced scaffolding and engineering companies, cost savings will be achieved – easily within a 12-month period.
With this quantifiable reduction in costs comes the added savings associated with reduced down-time and greater productivityfrom your maintenance department.
