Why This Course Is Essential

Knowledge and training are the keys to accident prevention!

This course aims to provide you with the critical knowledge on safety standards and best practices related to hand and power tools to reduce potential risks and injuries in the workplace. Hand and power tools are integral to virtually every industry, aiding in tasks that would otherwise be challenging or impracticable. However, improper use or use of defective tools can lead to serious injuries, or even fatalities.

In light of this, our training material has been meticulously developed based on Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards. However, it is not intended to replace the comprehensive safety and health standards for the general industry 1910, Subpart P, or for the construction industry, 1926, Subpart I.

So, are you looking to bolster your skills, increase workplace safety, and comply with OSHA standards? Our comprehensive course, “Mastering Hand and Power Tool Safety,” is the perfect solution.

The course will guide employees and employers through essential safe work practices when operating hand and portable power tools. This knowledge is particularly crucial given the recent 8.9% increase in workplace fatalities, as reported by the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics in their Injuries, Illness, and Fatality (IIF) program. While not all of these fatalities are attributable to tool-related incidents, understanding the proper usage of tools can certainly mitigate some of these risks.

Designed by experts with deep knowledge in tool safety, this course helps prevent workplace incidents, enhances individual safety skills, and aligns with OSHA’s meticulous standards for hand and power tool safety. It dives deep into a variety of topics, providing in-depth insights into tool selection, maintenance, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), safe operation procedures, and more.

Participants will not only learn how to protect themselves but also contribute to a safer working environment for their team. They’ll gain knowledge of preventive measures, understand the dangers associated with improper tool use, and learn to implement safety protocols effectively. This comprehensive approach will significantly reduce the risk of injuries and accidents at work.

For those in the 26 states and territories with OSHA-approved state safety and health plans, it’s advisable to consult with your state agency. They might be implementing standards and other procedures that, while equally effective as federal standards, may not always match the federal requirements exactly.

In essence, this course is designed to foster a safer work environment by educating about the proper use of hand and power tools, reinforcing the importance of adhering to safety standards, and promoting vigilant and mindful work practices.

In less than five hours, this course helps provide the skills and competencies necessary to identify and mitigate tool-related hazards, effectively manage risks, and promote a culture of safety in your industry. By the end of the course, participants will have the knowledge and tools to create a safer working environment, protect themselves and their colleagues, and contribute to the overall success of all your companies projects.
