Woodworking - Portable Power Tools


Who should attend?

For those who work with wood and wood-based materials using portable power tools both within the workshop and elsewhere in the workplace. Equally, it is for those who manage or supervise such environments and for those who carry any responsibility for health and safety in these workplaces.

Course aim

This seminar aims to create a detailed understanding of the wide-ranging hazards and risks associated with the use of portable power tools in woodworking.

From this will be developed a systematic practical approach minimising those risks in an area of woodworking which is often largely ignored from the safety viewpoint.

Regulatory compliance, including pending new legislation, will be explained in straightforward terms and, importantly, the latest engineered systems and safety techniques will be amply reviewed. Electrical, pneumatic and cordless types will be covered.
