Hand Tools Safety Induction

Course description

Hammers, wrenches, chisels, pliers, screwdrivers, and other hand tools are often underrated as sources of potential danger. Hand tools may look harmless, but they are the cause of many workplace injuries. An estimated 8 percent of all workplace compensatable injuries are caused by incidents associated with hand tools. These injuries can be serious, including amputation and loss of eyesight.

Safety while working in the mechanical environment with hand and electrical tools is of paramount importance. To maintain our high standard of safety, all staff and students undertaking work using hand tools in the engineering laboratories/workshops are required to undergo an hand tools induction and competency level assessment.
