OSHA Hand & Power Tool Safety Training

29 CFR 1910 Subpart P Online Training Certification

Hand tools are powered manually and include everything from axes to wrenches. Their greatest hazards come from misuse and improper maintenance. Power tools must be fitted with guards and safety switches. Power tools are extremely hazardous when used improperly.

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.

Click to Learn More How often is retraining or recertification required?

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.
