Safety Solutions: Working Safely with Hand and Power Tools
Cost: Free to Members and Self-Insured Clients
Hand and power tools are a common part of our everyday lives. These tools can help us to easily perform tasks that otherwise would be difficult or impossible, yet they also can be hazardous and cause severe injuries if used or not maintained properly. Employees who use hand and power tools are exposed to the hazards of falling, flying, abrasive, and splashing objects, or to harmful dusts, fumes, mists, vapors, or gases and must be provided with the appropriate personal protective equipment. This webinar taught by Trust staff will review basic safety procedures associated with their use and reduce or eliminate the potential hazards, as well as provide the attendee with a better understanding of the OSHA regulations.
- Identify, understand and reduce hazards and exposures that exist while using various hand and power tools to prevent employee injuries
- Gain a better understanding of the OSHA requirements listed in CFR 1910 Subpart P
