This training was prepared by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI and has been designed for someone learning the basic steps in tool safety. This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council levels I and II. This course is primarily intended for inspectors and technicians.

Hand and power tools are a common part of our everyday lives and are present in nearly every industry. These tools help us to easily perform tasks that otherwise would be difficult or impossible. However, these simple tools can be hazardous and have the potential for causing severe injuries when used or maintained improperly. Special attention toward hand and power tool safety is necessary in order to reduce or eliminate these hazards

In the process of removing or avoiding the hazards, workers must learn to recognize the hazards associated with the different types of tools and the safety precautions necessary to prevent those hazards.

In this training we'll discuss the proper use and maintenance of hand tools and a variety of power tools. This is a basic course in the safe use of hand and power operated tools. However, it does not go into regulatory compliance or manufacturer's instructions.

For more information on hand and power operated tool safety, contact your State safety office or the manufacturer.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how to properly and safely use a hand tool
  • Describe how to properly and safely use a power tool
  • List five types of power tools
  • List the five general safety rules for power tools


This course is designed for any individuals wanting to learn more about hand and power tool safety.
