SAFE Structure completes deal with USCG’s MH-60 Jayhawks

April 13, 2017  By SAFE Structure Designs

SAFE Structure Designs has announced that they successfully satisfied their contract to design, engineer and manufacture safety first ergonomic hangar equipment outfitting USCG Clearwater, Fla. fleet of Sikorsky MH-60 Jayhawks when performing both routine maintenance and complete overhauls on the MH-60 Jayhawk which can also be used on all models of the Black Hawk.

SAFE Structure worked alongside the USCG MH-60 maintenance crew to evaluate the high cost, poor quality as well as product inefficiencies of their existing hangar equipment which was delivered by another manufacture, All Metal MS.  SAFE Structure was able to cut costs for the USCG, as well as increased hangar space by developing a single safety first ergonomic unit that combines the parts rack, cowling rack, drive shaft rack and blade rack all-in-one.  SAFE Structure also redesigned the USCG’s basic work tables to have more durability at less of a cost.  The USCG clearwater took delivery of the safety first all inclusive ergonomic system last week.  

“SAFE Structure is dedicated to designing systems that promote mechanic safety and efficiency, while being cognizant of hangar space and storage functionality all within a cost effective budget for our customers”, states Johnny Buscema, SAFE Structure president and CEO. “Having manufacturing facilities strategically set up around the U.S., we even were able to hedged the USCG from wasting unnecessary funds on high shipping cost.  Ergonomics is not only a value found in our products but it’s also evident in our business model.”
