04.02.2019 Silo safety training courses

Hycontrol, Redditch, UK, a leading level measurement and silo protection supplier, has confirmed details of its new silo safety training courses, which have been audited and accredited by the Mineral Products Qualifications Council (MPQC). The courses cover all aspects of silo pressure safety during tanker deliveries and essential maintenance of safety equipment. Hycontrol is now taking training bookings for the rest of 2019.

Having worked closely with the quarry and aggregates sectors for over 30 years, it has become one of the most experienced companies to specify and supply level and pressure equipment in the UK. Having always provided training to customers, the company is now poised to share its accumulated specialist knowledge with the industry, focused on one of the most pressing and widely misunderstood issues facing aggregate and cement producers today: silo over-pressurisation and safety during deliveries.

The in-depth training courses for UK industry representatives will be held at the company’s Redditch, Worcestershire, headquarters. Recently refurbished training facilities will accommodate groups of 8-14 delegates for a detailed exploration of the causes of silo over-pressurisation, the risks involved, practical solutions, and more – with experienced engineers and trainers providing hands-on demonstrations.

A certificate of attendance is provided to each attendee, with the option of an official MPQC certificate. Two courses are currently offered by Hycontrol: a half-day basic silo safety awareness session, and a full-day advanced silo safety awareness course. Full details of the training programmes and their contents can be found at
