Safe use of power tools

Roof tilers use power tools on a daily basis, but no amount of practice can replace following principles of safe use from the get-go.

About this seminar

Power tools come in various shapes, sizes, voltages and varieties. Yet, irrespective of the size of the tool or how it’s powered, the principles of safe use apply equally to all.

First, remember that a power tool’s effectiveness is proportional to the user’s level of training in the use of the tool, as well as their diligence in following safety guidelines. Another fool-proof way to ensure its effectiveness is to do a visual check prior to commencing the job, to make sure it is in good working order.

Finally,  ensure a safe outcome for the user by standing away from moving equipment, keeping away while someone is using any type of power tool, and wearing the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) for the job.

Taking these principles into consideration could save your workers or co-workers from injury and fatality.

Work safe, get home safe.
