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 working on or near hydraulic systems safe. Take this course so that you will be aware of the hazards, how to prevent accidents and how to protect yourself. Ideal learners are employees who work on or around hydraulic equipment. 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 general awareness course.
By the end of this course, you will be able to:
- Recognize the hazards associated with hydraulics
- Identify safety practices to follow during hydraulic inspections
- Recall general safe work practices when working on or around hydraulics
- Know what to do for injuries caused by hydraulic fluid
