MARCOM Group Ltd., The Description:
MARCOM's "Hand and Power Tool Safety" Videotape Program shows how accidents can be significantly reduced by applying good general safety rules, and reviews what hazards are associated with the specific types of tools employees use. Hand and power tools are used every day in many types of business. They make our work easier and allow us to be more efficient. However, we often fail to see the hazards these tools present. The Videotape includes information on matching the tool to the job, the importance of "state of mind", personal protective equipment, good safety practices, tool care and maintenance, and more. The Videotape Program comes with a comprehensive Leader's Guide, reproducible Scheduling & Attendance Form, Employee Quiz, Training Certificate and Training Log.
Excerpt: Hand and power tools are a necessity on any work site. Armed with the right tools we’re more productive and efficient. However, hand and power tools can also be dangerous. When used incorrectly they can do a lot of damage in a short period of time. We need to work with these tools safely, on the job, and at home.
- Start with a safety plan.
- Assemble all the tools and materials you’ll need before you begin a job.
- Have appropriate personal protective equipment on hand as well
- Remember to choose tools and equipment that are designed for the job you’re going to do. Accept no substitutes. They’re too dangerous, and can quickly lead to an accident or a damaged tool.
- Make sure you know how to use everything you’ve collected
- Examine your work area for general hazards.
- Remove anything that might cause trouble
- And finally, stay alert. Don’t let distractions get the better of you. Step back for a minute if you become fatigued or irritated.
Cutting tools are dangerous. They slice through materials and fingers with alarming ease.
