S.A.F.E. Delivers Maintenance Stands to Airbus Helicopters Maintenance Training Center
S.A.F.E. Structure Designs (www.SAFEstructureDesigns.com) announces the delivery of custom ergonomic maintenance stands to the Airbus Helicopters Maintenance Training Center in Grand Prairie, TX, where technicians from around the world train in the support of Airbus Helicopters. The aircraft that have been outfitted at the training center are the EC120, EC130 and H145.
The SAFETY FIRST ergonomic stands allow technicians safe access to all areas of the aircraft while creating a highly efficient ergonomic environment. The stands are designed so that the instructor can train students on how to work efficiently when performing maintenance on the aircraft components. In return, the students are able to focus in more detail on the skill sets offered by the Airbus training instruction due to the safety and comfort provided by the stands.
S.A.F.E. Structure Designs equipped the Airbus stands with the latest features, including an anti-fatigue mat. The stands contour to the aircraft fuselage with sliders, leaving zero gaps. They are lightweight, easy to move and adjustable in height, allowing them to be used on various aircraft. The stands provide a large work platform for added safety. They will be used in all the training programs for maintenance technicians.
“Airbus Helicopters previously had an old set of platforms that became outdated as OSHA rules and safety guidelines have improved over the years. The Airbus team was keen of staying current with the highest safety stands, so they sought S.A.F.E. to develop stands that could provide safe access to all areas of the aircraft and improve the technicians' efficiency through ergonomics,” says Johnny Buscema, S.A.F.E. president and CEO. “During training, maintenance technicians must access all areas of the aircraft for extended periods of time. Our custom design provides the instructor and the student with a stand that improves safety, which allows the student to concentrate on the training. This support equipment enhances the outstanding maintenance training provided to Airbus customers. We have provided similar support equipment for a wide range of helicopters and airplanes in both the civilian and military sector.”
S.A.F.E. Structure Designs is a global provider of maintenance support equipment that strives to put safety first. S.A.F.E. listens to the needs of maintenance teams and designs custom equipment to the exact specifications that consider realistic ergonomic factors as well as efficiency.
