Ask Me Anything | Power Tool Safety

March 8th, 2023 11:00-12:00PM

In this Ask Me Anything session, Safety Advisor Lorne Davies will review the basics of power tool safety, help people better understand some common risks, and to answer your questions about power tool safety.

Handheld power tools pose a serious safety concern for workers in the manufacturing sector. Because they are so versatile, handheld power tools are often used in tight quarters, on ladders, and to perform small tasks on the spot. But portable circular saws, routers, hand grinders, jigsaws, and a variety of other handheld power tools can cause serious injuries to workers. 

Lorne has extensive experience using power tools and has responded to multiple workplace injuries resulting from the mis-use of power tools. He will be sharing what he knows to help people get home safe in this high level awareness session.

In this webinar you will learn

  • the basics of power tool safety
  • how to assess potential hazards and risks related to power tools
  • what you want to learn! Take this opportunity to ask all your questions related to power tool safety
