1972 – Fully enclosed cab ROPS/FOPS

Volvo was an early pioneer in providing construction equipment operators with a workplace that had a higher degree of safety.
In 1972, Volvo introduced a cab with a structure designed to protect the operator if the machine overturned – ROPS (Roll Over Protective Structure) – and also offered protection from falling objects – FOPS (Falling Objects Protection Structure).
