Frequently Asked Questions

Who must take this training?

The potential of serious injury exists from the misuse of hand and powered tools. It is therefore recommended that all “General Industry” employees who work with and around hand and portable powered tools take this safety training course.

This course does not cover hand and power tools standards for construction, logging operations, commercial diving operations, or shipyard, marine terminals and longshoring.

How often is retraining or recertification required?

OSHA has not specified any time frame for required retraining or recertification for Hand and Power Tool Safety. Since there is no OSHA standard dealing with this specific hazard the OSH Act general duty clause, section 5(a)(1), 29 U.S.C. 654(b)(1) defines the standard which provides that:

(a) Each employer –

(1) shall furnish to each of his employees employment and a place of employment which are free from recognized hazards that are causing or are likely to cause death or serious physical harm to his employees.

A recognized hazard is a danger recognized by the employer’s industry or industry in general, by the employer, or by common sense. The general duty clause does not apply if there is an OSHA standard dealing with the hazard, unless the employer knows that the standard does not adequately address the hazard.

What are the governing regulations?

This online course satisfies the safety training requirements for OSHA 29 CFR 1910 Subpart P Hand and Portable Powered Tools and Other Hand-Held Equipment.
