Customer Training with depth
SPANGLER – the Plus of safety.
Anyone who works in enclosed rooms of waste water treatment plants may be exposed to many underestimated hazards. These must be identified at an early stage so that accidents do not occur at all. From the equipment to entry protection and hazards from gases or oxygen deficiency. In order to ensure our employees‘ safety, Spangler regularly carries out safety trainings.
Its customers, like for example staff at sewage treatment plants, as well are faced with these challenges and must yearly take part in a training in order to be allowed to carry out necessary work in shafts for example. This led to the idea to invite the customers for this safety training.
Safety training ‘Access in enclosed rooms of waste water treatment plants’
In cooperation with the company Krapp Technologie from Hilpoltstein, which has been a partner as regards safety trainings for Spangler for long time, this professional training was organized. Mr Krapp explained and showed with practical exercises the correct use of protection and rescue equipment. On the one hand in order to avoid accidents, on the other hand to quickly and safely react in the case of a fall, injury or rescue. Particularly interesting for works at the sewage treatment plant was the proactive approach at work in hazardous atmospheres. The right handling of measuring devices for the free release measurement in case of gas hazards, like Ex-Methane, carbon dioxide/carbon monoxide or the measurement of the oxygen content is lifesaving. Not least, Mr Krapp also emphasized the responsibility of every person involved as regards the right application of devices, the correct use of safety equipment as well as the check of the site of operation. Basically, workers who are well prepared and trained and who use the right, intact equipment, can avoid many dangers.
