OSHA Hand & Power Tool Safety Training


Powered hand tools, which include everything from axes to wrenches, are commonly used for various work purposes across industries. These tools are highly dangerous if they are not handled or maintained properly. As these tools are electrically operated, they are subjected to electrical hazards hence wires and safety switches need be properly insulated to avoid electrical shock. These tools can also cause physical hazard when operated from elevated place.
