As a supplier of 700 pressure bar hydraulic tools and equipment, SPX FLOW's Hydraulic Technologies takes safety very seriously – so it is offering free awareness seminars on hydraulic safety, to companies within the Caspian Region and around the rest of the world.

Held on the premises of the trainees, the safety awareness seminar covers areas that are risks when using hydraulic equipment such as identifying hazards, handling and storage, transportation, quality of equipment and plant maintenance, as well as a safety checklist. The awareness seminar runs for an hour with the opportunity for questions and answers afterwards, and attendees receive a safety handbook and certificate.

SPX FLOW's Hydraulic Technologies has partnered with hydraulics specialists to run the ‘5S+1 Safety Awareness Seminars’ around the Caspian region over the past few months, and they have been well received, says SPX FLOW's Hydraulic Technologies’ Territory Manager, Turkey and Azerbaijan, Asir Yilmaz.

“A high standard of training is necessary for the safe operation of 700 bar hydraulic equipment, and this awareness seminar gives people an understanding of the possible dangers, such as high pressure injection injuries. The awareness seminars help ensure our customers use force amplifying, high pressure hydraulic tools safely, protecting workers and avoiding lost time due to accidents and equipment damage.”
