Introduction
This Hydraulic Hose Training manual has been put together by an Australian Company based on the Gold Coast. Mobile Hose Fixers & Hydraulics has been operating for over 20 years so we know a few things about Hoses, Fittings and High Pressure Hydraulics.

You can use this course as both a guide and a reference to assist you to carry out your work safely, efficiently and most importantly profitably.
As a Hydraulic Hose Technician, you must make a systematic review of each situation and then select and install hoses and fittings and other spare or replacement parts necessary to fulfil the requirements of the application.
It is absolutely important that you observe and obey all safety requirements before, during and after work has been carried out.  You are required under the Australian Workplace Health and Safety Act to notify the owner or operator of any unsafe conditions or possible premature failure of hoses or associated fittings.
Care must be taken to avoid oil spills. Appropriate caps and plugs must be fitted and drip trays used where possible, in order to minimize spills. When spills occur, it is necessary to use rags or an approved oil absorbing material to ensure that the oil is contained and removed.
Note:  It is an offence against Australian Environmental legislation to allow oil to be introduced into the storm water drainage system. Under no circumstances may spilled oil be flushed or dumped into gutters or storm water drains.
This course is one of the major sections in the “Mobile Hose Fixers and Hydraulics Operators Folder” which is a guideline to assist you in marketing yourself as a Mobile Hose Fixer, It outlines “on the job” procedures, and gives practical advice on hose making.  You may, however, come across unusual situations requiring innovative solutions.  Using your initiative to resolve these situations will be required, and will help you to become a better Mobile Hose Fixer.  You must always adhere to all safety procedures, and ensure that checks are carried out under working conditions.
Remember: Advice is only a phone call away.  If you are unsure, contact Mobile Hose Fixers& Hydraulics. in Gold Coast Australia.
Your Workplace Safety Policy
Safety – General
Correct Attire Try to always wear the Mobile Hose Fixers uniform.  Black Cotton Cargo Pants (these pants give you room to move and lots of pockets), Black Cotton Short Sleeved Shirt, Black Cotton or Bamboo Socks and Black Steel Capped Safety Boots. As well as looking professional, the uniform of good quality and can stand a great deal of rough punishment.  Make sure you have enough uniform sets We recommend 5 sets changed Daily to suit your needs.  A Reflective or high-visibility vest or clothing is now mandatory on most work sites.

Safety Footwear Safety footwear with Steel Toe Caps is a must and should be worn at all times when carrying out repairs either on-site, or in the workshop.  Safety footwear comes in a range of styles and a variety of materials.  Remember, the majority of spillage is oil, so the material of the footwear should be oil as well as slip resistant.

Safety Spectacles

Contrary
to what most people think in regard to safety spectacles, is that you
should only wear them when grinding, drilling, buffing etc, you should
in fact wear them when dealing with anything high pressure whether it is
static or fluctuation pressures.
Safety Hats

Safety
Hats or hard hats are to be worn where instructed, usually at a
construction site or where a sign displays the use of safety hats. 
Safety Hats will also protect your head and scalp from UV rays from the
sun as well as from low obstacles that you need top duck under. The site
Safety Officer may question you if you are not wearing a hat, and can
actively order you off the site.

Dehydration

Just
about every new guy we have employed has suffered from the effects of
dehydration because they ignored our instructions on taking ample
drinking water with them to a job. 

You
will for the most part be working outside on an open exposed site under
the sun, in the wind and usually in close proximity to hot equipment,
engines and pumps. As this job can at times be physically quite
demanding, the lack of available drinking water can lead to strange side
effects such as lack of concentration, dizziness and nausea, if these
effects are ignored can result in mistakes, and or even deadly
accidents. 

Make
sure you take with you to each job at least 3 liters of cool clean
drinking water. If you perspire a lot you make also want to consider
taking an electrolyte supplement to replace essential salts and minerals
perspired out.

Ear Protection

The wearing of hearing
protection may be a mandatory safety requirement in some workplaces, or
at specific locations within a workplace.  In most instances
appropriate signage will alert you to this requirement.   

However,
even when hearing protection is not required, consideration should be
given to wearing hearing protection in workplaces that do generate
excessive noise. 
This would be more common in factory situations where injection molding or stamping machine were in operation.  

On
construction sites, it would be wise to wear some sort of hearing
protection if you were working close to drilling machines or rock
breakers for some length of time.
Welding Goggles

Welding
Goggles should be used at all times when electric or gas welding. 
Similar to safety spectacles, they are to be used to protect your eyes. 
Irreversible damage can be caused to eyes due to the brightness of the
light that is radiated when welding
Vehicle
Maintenance

The mobile hose operator, must maintain a regular service
program for the vehicle regardless of its age. This ensures that the vehicle remains reliable (paramount to business
success), and safe to operate.

In
addition to regular mechanical servicing, the van operator must also check the
condition of tyres, wiper blades, bulbs, fluid levels, reverse beepers etc. in
accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Specific information should be available in
the vehicle’s owner’s manual. Please see vehicle weekly Inspection Sheet in appendix. 

Types of Vehicles to Use
We have tried and used, Utes, Vans and Light Trucks between 3.0 to to 4.5 tones Gross Vehicle Mass.

Based
on our experience the most reliable, user friendly and available space
has come from Using Light Trucks with swing up doors on all sides. They
usually are built stronger can carry more weight and are more cost
effective.

We
choose to use Isuzu Trucks mainly because in Australia they have market
share and therefore parts are readily available at a reasonable prices,
but more importantly because we have found that with regular
maintenance, parts are rarely required other than the mandatory
consumables such as oil and air filters, tires, brake pads or shoes and
the occasional starter motor.
