CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Power Tool Institute (PTI), the leading organization for power tool safety resources, information, and education, has announced the launch of its new online training module.
“Power Tool Safety – It’s in Your Hands,” is designed to help users better understand the safe way to use power tools.
The training module is broken into sections featuring lessons on safe use, handling, storage, and transportation of power tools including the safe use of cordless power tools. The sections include:
- Importance of power tool safety
- Inspection of power tools
- Caring for power tools
- What to do prior to using a power tool
In addition, the training module comes with a quiz at the end to test users’ retention of the lessons. The version with the test can be found in videos under the “Safety Education” tab of the PTI website (http://powertoolinstitute.com/pti-pages/ed-safety-videos.asp), and a version without the test can be found on PTI’s YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/PowerToolInstitute).
Founded in 1968, PTI’s primary objectives are to promote the common business interests of the power tool industry; to represent the industry before government; to educate the public as to the usefulness and importance of power tools; to encourage high standards of safety in the manufacture of power tools; and to prepare and distribute information about safe use of power tools.
