Hydraulic engineering is a diverse sector. That also applies to the work that takes place there. Despite the high safety requirements, things sometimes go wrong. A small accident can have major consequences. Routine work can sometimes also be a risk. In addition, more and more attention is being paid to mental well-being. If you feel good about yourself, you work much better. Therefore, don't forget to take a good look at yourself and your colleagues from time to time.
