Carpentry 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 carpentry 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 carpentry tools. This is a basic course in the safe use of carpentry tools and does not go into regulatory compliance or manufacturer's instructions. This training is broken into three modules:
Module 1: Handsaws, Ladders, Screwdrivers and Squares
Module 2: Hammers, Sledge Hammers, Pry Bars, Rulers, and Levels
Module 3: Portable Power Tools
For more information on hand and power operated tool safety, contact your State safety office or the manufacturer.
This course is designed for any individuals wanting to learn more about carpentry tool safety.
