About this course

When such high levels of kinetic energy are contained in small, compressed spaces, the pressure inside the container is much higher than the pressure outside of the container. If you don’t handle this with care, the pressurised air can escape at very high speeds and temperatures, which can cause serious harm to people and damage to buildings, objects, and machinery. But with a little care and attention, you can make handling compressed air much safer. 

During this course, you’ll learn how you can reduce the risks posed by compressed air – whether you’re an employer who’s responsible for the safety of your workforce, or an employee who works with compressed air on a regular basis.  

This course will help you understand what compressed air is, why it’s used, and what makes it so dangerous; what responsibilities employers have and what safe working practices they need to put in place; and what employees need to do to ensure their own safety as well as anyone else who might be affected by their work.
