S.A.F.E. Works Alongside L.A. County Fire to Design Custom Maintenance Stands for Bell B412
S.A.F.E. Structure Designs and the L.A. County Fire Department team up to develop a set of custom ergonomic maintenance stands for the B412. The SAFETY FIRST ergonomic stands allow technicians safe access to perform maintenance on the engines, transmission and main rotor systems of the aircraft.
The stands are designed for the performance of both complete overhauls and routine maintenance. Lightweight and easy to move around, they are compact enough to fit into a busy hangar yet provide plenty of space on the work platform. Safety and efficiency for the maintenance staff is increased, as the stands allow for multiple technicians to work on the aircraft at the same time without impeding one another. S.A.F.E. also offers several modification options for the B412 maintenance stands, depending on the individual customer’s aircraft application.
Dennis Blumenthal, the director of maintenance for L.A. County Fire, has 24 years of experience working on the B412. He advised S.A.F.E. with maintenance tips and design suggestions that were incorporated into the final stands to provide the most efficient and safe working environment for both routine and heavy maintenance.
“I am humbled and honored that Dennis has always been willing to open up his hanger to S.A.F.E. Structure and assist us with his knowledge from many years of experience,” says Johnny Buscema, S.A.F.E. CEO. “In past years, we worked with Dennis to develop Firehawk custom platforms that turned out to be an industry standard for Firehawk maintenance. We believe these custom B412 stands meet the same high standards."

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, providing answers to unique challenges when working on complex aircraft.
