Power Tools

Power tools in the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) context encompass a range of electric, pneumatic, or hydraulic devices used in various industries. These tools, while efficient, can pose significant risks if not handled correctly. OHS guidelines stress the importance of proper training for operators, regular equipment maintenance, and the use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) such as goggles, gloves, and hearing protection. Safety measures also include inspecting tools before use, ensuring stable work surfaces, and following manufacturer instructions and safety guidelines. Mitigating risks associated with power tools involves creating a culture of safety, emphasizing education, and implementing stringent protocols to prevent accidents, injuries, and exposure to hazards in the workplace.
