Safe Use of Power Tools Training

What is it?

As the name suggests it’s a tool that is powered by either electricity, battery, compressed air or petrol to name a few. This includes tools such as; drills, saws, angle grinders, nail guns, abrasive wheels, woodworking tools.

The serious bit

It is estimated that on average at least 12 million fingers are lost each year through the misuse of power tools…we’re kidding. Although, the long and short of it is that these tools can be extremely dangerous to operate if untrained. Workers do lose fingers, they are electrocuted, and they do develop cancers. That’s why it’s so important to ensure your employees are trained on the safe use of power tools.

The legal bit

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER) requires that all persons using, supervising or managing the use of work equipment – in this case power tools – are appropriately trained on the use of the equipment, the risks arising from its use and the precautions that should be taken.

The courses

There are multiple training courses available focused on the safe use of power tools so it’s important to first identify your specific needs. As power tools generally fall under the same legislation most courses include a similar theory section together with a tool specific practical element.

Training can also vary depending on the type and model of the tools so we will always verify the tool types and models with you to ensure you get the most relevant course. If you are using multiple power tools, we can combine all the required training into a single course for you and your employees.
