Hydraulic Safety



Hydraulic Safety

Hydraulic systems are extraordinarily powerful. They can lift and crush cars, houses and giant boulders. That kind of force requires strict safety measures to keep people who work on or near hydraulic systems safe. Take this course so that you will be aware of the hazards and ways to prevent accidents and to protect yourself. Ideal learners are employees who use and work around hydraulic equipment and their supervisors. Note that while this course may be used as part of an overall training plan for qualified employees who build, dismantle, maintain and repair hydraulic systems, these audiences need additional in-depth and machine-specific training that is beyond the scope of this course.
