Hand and Power Tools – Orientation

From tightening a screw, to cutting wood, to mixing ingredients, tools are used in every major workplace today. Tools are an integral part of our lives and have become so commonplace they are almost an extension of us and our hands. We have tools for almost every task, tools specific to right and left-handed workers and gadgets for tasks so easy, such as opening a pop can, they can often be overlooked, and their dangers forgotten.

Hand and Power Tools – Table Saws

Our ears play a critical role in our daily lives. If you stop for a moment and listen, you will notice all the sounds around you, those that are near and obvious, and those that are far. At all times we are hearing and interpreting these sounds whether or not we are aware of it. We use this information in our daily lives. But what would happen if all those sounds went away? Hearing loss is a common occurrence for individuals exposed to loud noises in their daily lives and even short exposures can lead to a lifetime of loss. Protecting your ears is an important part of working safely.

However, when used correctly, they can be a huge time saver, letting you make cuts and adjustments quickly.
