Jobs would not get done without electrical tools, but it’s important to use caution when working with them. Today’s Safety Saturday moment discusses how to safely use electrical tools.
Anyone working with a tool should be aware of the hazards that come with electrical tools, especially when not used correctly. Safety devices and guards should never be removed, and never use any type of equipment without completing a safety inspection. A safety inspection should include inspecting extension cords and connections. If cracks, cuts, or signs of electrical damage are found, do not use the tool. Maintain safe work practices when using the tool.
Until next time, from all of us at the W. L. French Safety Department, stay safe out there.
