Tool Box Talk Power Tools and Cords Mobile App
The Tool Box Talk Power Tools and Cords app discusses the correct use of tools and cords at a construction site.
How does it work?
The use of approved equipment does not eliminate all dangers - damaged or equipment used in poor conditions, such as in rain or wet areas can lead to a risk of injury. Most electrical equipment manufacturers specify that their equipment should not be used in damp or wet conditions. The app goes through safe work procedures, including inspecting tools, power cords, and electrical fittings for damage prior to each use, switching tools off before connecting to an outlet, not allowing vehicles or equipment to pass over unprotected power cords, not carrying electrical tools by the power cord etc. The form also includes a section to record the staff who attended the training including their signature and the company they work for. There is also a section for the manager's remarks about the training.
