Hydraulic Hose Inspection Procedures

The Environment Agency has a large fleet of mobile equipment, from excavators to cranes, mowers to fork lift trucks. All this equipment uses hydraulics to power them or their attachments, and even their static machinery utilises hydraulic systems, such as floodgates or locks.

There was a concern that a lack of awareness regarding the dangers of faulty or worn out hydraulic hoses could result in either a serious injury to a member of staff or an environmental pollution incident. Pirtek, Europe’s number one provider of hydraulic equipment solutions also wanted to increase their own staff’s knowledge of safety considerations.

To help keep staff and the environment safe, we developed a training video that provides crucial information on the construction and components of hydraulic systems, plus information on essential safety topics such as the inspection and maintenance requirements of hydraulic machinery.

“Can Studios consistently meet our expectations and often exceed them. Can Studios have without fail delivered an excellent quality of service across all areas, often adding value above and beyond initial requirements. Consistently providing excellent support, their staff are responsive and professional and take personal responsibility for seeing any support issue through to a successful conclusion.”
