Power Tool Safety
The power tools available from Toolstop are designed for the UK market and meet all UK safety regulations and standards. We cannot guarantee that products used outside the UK will comply with local safety regulations and standards. If you require clarification please contact us.
At Toolstop, we sell hundreds of power tools per week. These power tools enable you to complete difficult tasks with relative ease and accuracy. However, power tools need respect so we have teamed up with The Power Tool Institute Inc. (PTI) to provide a range of materials to allow you to have the knowledge to avoid accidents.
The PTI provides a variety of information, teaching materials, educational materials, safety videos, FAQ's and a glossary of terms to enable you to use power tools safely.
"Safety is Specific" is PTI's key safety publication, a 50-page illustrated brochure that includes a straightforward compilation of rules and safe practices for each category of power tool use (specific cautions, warnings and dangers).
"Power Tools Safety" is a four-page, cartooned brochure consisting of recommendations for the safe use of portable and stationary power tools on the job or at home
