Most people have injured themselves with a tool at least once in their lives. In fact learning to use some tools seems to "require" a little pain. Unfortunately, tool accidents result in thousands of serious injuries and hundreds of deaths each year... most of which could have been avoided by simply handling tools safely. To avoid these types of accidents employees need to know how to handle their tools safely. But this can be a difficult task, since every tool has its own unique set of hazards.
This training product on "Hand and Power Tool Safety in Construction Environments" show how accidents can be significantly reduced by applying good general safety rules, and reviews what hazards are associated with the specific types of tools we use. Topics covered in these products include:
- Tool hazards.
- Tool maintenance.
- Inspecting power tools.
- Protecting yourself and others from hazards.
- Personal protective equipment.
- Choosing tools that "fit" you and the job.
- and more!
The DVD versions of the programs are divided into 2-3 minute "chapters", so the programs can be shown in their entirety in a single session, or individual chapters can be used as the basis for a number of 10-15 minute "Tailgate Meetings" or "Toolbox Talks"
