When handling and using lubricants,
personal injuries can occur if common
sense is not part of the process. Many
lubricants are delivered and stored in 55gal. drums that can weigh in excess of 400
lb. Drums are not easily handled and back
strain is common when trying to manually
move one of them. If a forklift is used, great

care must be taken to ensure the drum is
positioned and/or secured correctly so it
can't fall off in mid air and cause injury
from collision or explosion on impact.
Where oils are purchased in bulk, explore
using totes that are filled on site. They are
sturdy and can be placed in a permanent
location one time only, eliminating the need
to rotate and move drum stock. For grease,
consider buying smaller 5-gal. pails. They
are easily transported on lube trucks and
the relatively small container assures the
grease stays fresh.
Lubrication activities require a technician
to fill machine-lubricant reservoirs, swap
out breathers, change filters, take oil samples, and often manually apply lubricants
directly to machine bearings with a grease
or oil gun under pressure. If the lubrication
