Original title Verstńrkte Sicherheit bei der Hochdruckreinigung [in German]
Bibliographic information Jan. 1989, Vol.15, No.1, p.10, 13. Illus.
Abstract The indicators of defective electric drives and hoses of high-pressure cleaning equipment are enumerated such as faulty plugs, repeated blowing of fuses and damaged sleeves. The importance of obeying relevant guidelines is stressed because otherwise employers can be sued in case of accidents. The personal protective equipment to be worn depends on the cleaning agents used and includes e.g. boots, spectacles, helmets with a face shield.
