Hydraulic Safety Seminars

Workplace safety should be a high priority to assure high-pressure hydraulic tools are used in accordance with recommended safety procedures. Safety Training Seminars demonstrate the proper methods for operating high-pressure hydraulic tools to avoid equipment damage and lost time accidents. SPX FLOW offers two different safety seminars; Hydraulic Safety & Puller Safety.

  • Hydraulic Safety - Hydraulic components operating high pressures (10,000 psi/700 bar) give you the advantages of compact size and portability. But, any high-force equipment needs to be used safely and sensibly. After attending this informative session, you will be well aware of techniques and requirements to inspect, connect and operate high-force tools in a safe manner.
  • Puller Safety - This program presents the three basic pulling problems and the safe solutions for using jaw-type pullers, push-pullers, hydraulically-powered pullers, specialty pullers and puller adapters and accessories. After attending, you will know the proper steps required to safely select and operate the best puller for the job.

The puller and hydraulic safety seminars can be run independently, or combined together. Safety seminars can be conducted at a customer facility, job site or at Power Team headquarters.
