Hand & Power Tool Safety

Online Training Certification Course

29 CFR 1910 Subpart P

From the highest rated and most trusted online training company - since 2008.

This hand and power tool safety training course covers OSHA Hand and Power Tool Safety standards, focusing on General Industry 29 CFR 1910 Subpart P. Employees should be trained in the proper use of all tools and be able to recognize the hazards associated with different types of tools and required safety precautions.

This course is for:
The potential of serious injury exists from the misuse of hand and powered tools. It is therefore recommended that all "General Industry" employees who work with and around hand and portable powered tools take this safety training course.

Available languages: 100+ languages - translation provided by Google Translate (Select Language bottom of page)

Case Study: In February 2018, a metal worker in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, was using a handheld grinder when the grinding disc burst. The employee was struck in the face and head, suffering lacerations, contusions, and the loss of vision in one eye.

Key Takeaway: Using the same tools day after day without incident doesn’t mean the tool can’t hurt you. Had the employee been wearing required head and face protection, it is unlikely that he would have lost vision in one eye. The lesson: Take time for safety every time.

OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for Hand and Power Tool Safety. Since there is no OSHA standard dealing with this specific hazard the OSH Act general duty clause, section 5(a)(1), 29 U.S.C. 654(b)(1) defines the standard which provides that:

(a) Each employer -

(1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.

A recognized hazard is a danger recognized by the employer's industry or industry in general, by the employer, or by common sense. The general duty clause does not apply if there is an OSHA standard dealing with the hazard, unless the employer knows that the standard does not adequately address the hazard.

Each student will receive 0.2 CEUs (or 2 CMEs) from Compliance Training Online® for completing this course.
