The maintenance workshop is an area where there are a number of heavy vehicles, such as trucks, that require repair and upkeep. Workers in the workshop are exposed to several hazards on a daily basis.
This module trains around typical risks that occur when working in a maintenance workshop servicing trucks and heavy mobile equipment. Pinch points, isolations, working at height and safe manual handling are key hazards.
Workers use powered hand tools, compressors, jacks and stands, welding equipment, and oils and chemicals, on a regular basis. The safe operation and handling of this equipment and hazardous materials are a key focus.
