  • All electrical hand-operated tools are inspected and are therefore safe as well!
  • At one point I was injured while working with electrical hand-operated tools.

In this Toolbox we devote attention to working with electrical hand-operated tools and equipment.
Electrical hand-operated tools are used on a large scale. Nowadays there is an electrical tool for almost any job. These tools are generally practical and easy to operate. Furthermore, they make the work easier and faster. Most of these tools look so simple that it would appear that anyone can use them without any problems. This is exactly what makes them so risky.

Risks > What can happen?

  • Being hit by flying particles;
  • Coming into contact with moving parts;
  • Fire caused by the electrical tool catching fire;
  • Poor state of maintenance;
