Safety Alert: Regulator publishes guideline for hydraulic safety

January 22, 2018 Tara

Safety procedures for the maintenance and operation of heavy equipment begin with the understanding that anyone who works with hydraulic machinery must be aware of the potential hazards involved.

The Resources Regulator has updated and republished MDG 3007 Hydraulic safety on the website.

The simplicity of control of many hydraulic systems can cause operators to forget the hazards and potential dangers that result from the enormous power and mechanical forces associated with the equipment.

One fraction of a second of carelessness or a simple oversight, could result in serious injury and possibly death.
