It might seem silly to think of non-powered hand tools as hazardous, but anyone who’s ever hit a finger with the full force of a hammer blow or staple-gunned their hand might beg to differ. Power tools are relatively safe when used properly and well maintained, but an electric shock resulting from a defective or modified device can be deadly. This module will teach you the basics for keeping yourself and your coworkers out of harms way when using tools.

OSHA recommends Outreach Training Program courses as an orientation to occupational safety and health for workers.  Workers must receive additional training, when required by OSHA standards, on the specific hazards of their job.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the lesson, participants will be able to:


  • List at least three basic hand and power tool safety rules
  • Identify at least two precautions that are essential to safe use of:
  • Name at least two guarding techniques or principles that apply to hand and power tools
