HAND TOOLS – there is a possibility of injury when using hand tools:

• Using wrong tool for the application
• Using a tool in a manner for which it was not designed
• Tool slipping whilst in use

Protective Measures:
• Ensure that hand tools are of the correct type and size for the job
• Check handles for split, broken or loose heads
• Are heads mushroomed on chisels, if they are do not use, return them for regrinding
• Screwdrivers are NEVER to be used as chisels or levers
• Avoid splayed jaws on spanners. Use the right size; do not pack to make fit. Do not extend with a handle
• Do not use tools for any other purpose than that which they were intended.
• Carry all tools in properly designed containers and handle with care.
Tell me, and I'll forget. Show me, and I'll remember. Involve me, and I'll learn.
