TOOL SAFETY TRAINING GOES ON-SITE TO CUT DOWNTIME

Enerpac Goal Zero training

High-pressure hydraulics specialist Enerpac has devised a new programme of on-site safety training that aims to improve both uptime and performance of widely used tools while highlighting workplace hazards and preventable accidents.

The company’s Goal Zero Safety Programmes draw on its workplace experience to promote the goal of zero harm to employees, customers and end users of both Enerpac and other-brand hydraulic machinery used across Australia, New Zealand and PNG.

“As a hydraulic technology and safety leader in Australasia for more than 50 years, Enerpac is now taking a further lead in the industry by taking its unique expertise out on site where it will do the most good for busy people and companies,” says Enerpac Western Australia Territory Manager David Capper.

“These are practical, down-to-earth safety training development courses designed to deliver immediate benefits from course leaders who combine local expertise with global knowledge and standards. The key outcomes on which they focus are reduced accidents and downtime.”

The on-site courses are personalised to the requirements of each workplace, covering the specific needs and applications of industries such as mining, oil and gas, energy generation, primary processing, bulk handling, construction, infrastructure, transport and public utility organisations.

Topics covered include tool inspections and guidance on correct workplace usage, correct maintenance and storage practices to optimise safety and uptime, and strategies to extend tool life and productivity.

Case studies are used to illustrate potentially dangerous practices, and safety guidelines are presented both for general situations and for particular industries.

The courses are open to groups at various levels, including tool users, supervisors, inspectors, safety managers, project and site engineers, maintenance shutdown engineers, administration and management staff concerned with risk assessment and management, and training and development managers.
