Pressure testing involves applying stored energy to an assembly of parts and is carried out to verify its strength and/or integrity.

There are various types of pressure equipment used in the workplace which can be hazardous, especially when used without training or experience. These include but is not limited to steam boilers, pressurised hot-water boilers, air compressors, gas storage tanks and chemical reaction vessels.

If these systems aren’t used or tested with caution, things can go wrong and these types of equipment can cause serious injuries and even fatalities. Identifying the hazards and assessing the risks before use will minimise the chances of any accidents occurring.

Our pressure testing toolbox talk helps keep employees safe and reduce health and safety issues in workplaces where pressure systems and equipment are used as part of the tasks.

If you are considering our pressure testing toolbox talk, our Hazard Recognition Toolbox Talk and Safe Isolation Toolbox Talk might be of interest to you as well.
