Hand and Power Tool Safety Checklists
Hand and power tools make work easier and more efficient. However, there are a number of hazards involved in using these
tools that can cause significant injuries. A few include amputations, lacerations, puncture wounds, eye
injuries, electrocutions and many other physical impairments. In the US, nail guns alone account for an estimated 25,000
emergency room injuries among workers (OSHA source).
Regular inspections ensure that all tools and equipment are in good working condition. Workers must undergo training to gain
adequate knowledge on handling these tools so they are used solely for their specific functions. Protective
equipment can also serve as an additional defence against tool hazards.
