Fluid Power Safety Newsletter
"Most people who service, repair, and troubleshoot hydraulic systems are vulnerable to the possibility of high-pressure injection injuries because they are not properly trained in hydraulics and pneumatics to recognize and prevent a potential hazard. A key obstacle towards achieving and maintaining a well-trained workforce is the high level of labour turnover, which more than likely demands that an inexperienced operator learn a new complex task by trial-and-error in a production situation while at the same time expecting of him to generate a high level of productivity. Judging from the positive feedback received from viewers over the years the reports and case studies published on this site have greatly benefited many individuals, including unskilled and semi-skilled operators who are made more aware of the physics associated with hydraulics and the prevention of debilitating, high-pressure injection injuries."
