Australian Pump Industries offers a safety training course designed to educate operators on the dangers of high pressure cleaning.
Worth Recycling recently put another team of their hydro-blaster operators through the safety awareness course, called Pro-Operator Safety Awareness.
Australia’s leading designer and manufacturer of high pressure cleaning equipment, Aussie Pumps is based on a 2½ acre state-of-the-art complex in Sydney’s Norwest boutique business district. Aussie Pumps’ Adam Scully explains that their responsibility extends beyond manufacturing good gear to making sure operators stay safe while they are using the equipment.
The Safety Awareness Course is part of a series of courses developed by Aussie Pumps under the ‘Pro-Operator’ banner, which also includes courses for Triplex Pump Maintenance, Steam Cleaner Operator and Maintenance Guidelines, and the more in-depth Industrial High Pressure Water Blaster Maintenance program.
Worth Recycling is an industry leader in the collection, transportation, processing and recycling of liquid, sludge and solid waste. They also offer industrial cleaning services and have major contracts with multi-nationals involved in shipbuilding, mining and the growing oil and gas industry. Worth Recycling understands the importance of operator training as an integral part of their safety program.
Placing a heavy emphasis on personal safety and risk assessment, the Pro-Operator Safety Awareness Course covers detailed technical explanations of piston pump technology, and also includes the correct and safe application of safety and pressure release valves, and the effective sizing of nozzles.
Aussie Pumps’ safety training courses are open to professional operators in pressure cleaning including contractors, local government bodies, mining and construction companies.
