Enerpac introduces safety courses

High-pressure hydraulics specialist Enerpac is introducing to Australasia new on-site safety training designed to optimise the uptime and performance of widely used tools while spotlighting workplace hazards and preventable accidents.

Enerpac’s Goal Zero Safety Programs draw on the organisation’s practical workplace experience in more than 30 countries and its commitment to promote the goal of zero harm to employees, customers and end users of Enerpac and other-brand heavy lift, shift, position, fabrication and bolting 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,” Enerpac Western Australia Territory Manager David Capper said.

“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.”

Mr Capper is working in partnership with his East Coast colleague and SE Queensland/ Northern NSW Territory Manager Sandy Whyman, along with Enerpac’s network of Territory Managers, to bring the safety message on-site to audiences who might not otherwise have the time or opportunity to bring themselves up to date with technology advances and the latest safety and maintenance best practice global standards.

Elements of the on-site courses are tailored to the needs of individual sites and workshops, including mine, oil and gas, energy generation, primary processing (including paper, sugar, food and beverage and agribusiness) bulk handling, construction, infrastructure (inc ports and defence establishments) transport (inc rail, road and aviation) and energy generation and public water and local authority service utility organisations. They include:

* Tool inspections and correct workplace usage guidance
* Maintenance and storage practices that optimise safety and uptime
* Spotlighting potentially dangerous practices, with case studies
* Extending tool life and productivity
* Safety guidelines for general situations and for particular industries
* Attendance certificates

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