How to safely use your power and hand tools

Construction is a dangerous business, so you need to be fully prepared if you wish to avoid any problems. Ours is a company that can assist you with this. We offer the finest courses centred on SSSTS London has available. At the end, you will be ready to perform your duties to the best of your abilities.

There hasn’t ever been a single commercial construction project that has not involved the intervention of power or hand tools. What you must remember about them is that they pose various risks, including lacerations, electric shocks, and also punctures. If you want to maximise site safety the tips we’ve produced below can help.

Avoid alterations

One of the things you should never do is reconstruct your tools. This includes disabling security features as well as removing the guards. Don’t cover up or paint them either, unless you want to risk not spotting any cracks or chips in the housing. If you damage a tool whilst using it, avoid making on the spot repairs if you lack the proper parts.

Leave enough room

Keep your distance as well. With both power and hand tools, there must be enough space for you to work safely without encountering other people or objects. Those who are operating at a height should check to confirm that there aren’t any individuals below. If there are people around and you drop a tool, it could cause a major injury.

You need to be careful when using nail guns and similar tools too. Ensure that everyone is out of your line of sight, as there’s always a chance that they might accidentally misfire or discharge.

At PIP Services Ltd, our course introduces you to the environmental and welfare concerns that you can expect to find at your site. In addition, you’ll learn about how health and safety influences your position. The comprehensive nature of the training makes our course the best for SSSTS London has to offer.
