How to prevent the most common risks and accidents in the use of hand tools?

In previous posts, we have been analyzing the basic safety rules to be followed when using industrial tools. We also looked at the most common accidents and their causes. Today, let's take a look at some measures that can be taken to prevent, or reduce, these risks. Read on to find out more!

What are the most common risks and accidents using hand tools?

In the previous post we were talking about what are the basic rules of safety in the use of tools. Today, we will delve deeper into the most common risks and accidents that exist when using this means, to further emphasize why it is so important to consider these basic safety rules.

The basic rules of safety in tool use

The hand tool is a means used in all sectors of all industrial activities, so the number of workers exposed to them is very high. That is why safety principles are important, not only for the tool, but also for the user himself. Do you know what they are? Do you want to know them? Keep reading!

The importance of interpreting ATEX designations

When acquiring a tool or machine for use in explosive environments, the characteristics of these environments must be clearly understood. Working in a Zone 0/20 is not the same as working in one that is classified as Zone 1/21 or Zone 2/22. The same applies if the explosive atmosphere may be caused by dust or gas.

Aspects to consider when purchasing adapters for socket wrenches

When using an adapter, we always have to make sure that it fulfills its function properly, that it resists a minimum of force applied when tightening, in other words: a minimum torque. Do you know what the minimum torque is? Keep reading!

Confined spaces: what preventive measures should be taken?

In the previous post, we were talking about what a confined space is, and the risks that exist working in them. Today we are going to talk briefly about the preventive measures that must be taken by operators who carry out their work inside them. Keep reading!

What are confined spaces and what are the risks involved?

Confined spaces are places where the accident rate is especially significant in the field of industrial safety. Two thirds of the deaths produced were due to the existence of dangerous atmospheres. They are prone to an oxygen deficient atmosphere, and are not designed for continuous occupation by the operator. Keep reading if you want to know more.
