Safety Tips When Hiring Tools

Slide 2:

Tool hire is a fantastic option in the modern world. It means that we can carry out work without having to go to too much expense. However, whenever you hire tool, it is vital that you follow remain safe. Power tools are some of the most dangerous things in the world, and many people hurt themselves using power tools. Here, we offer a few tips for staying safe when hiring tools. Tip 1: Always use a hire company that has a good reputation When hiring tools, it’s important that you choose a good hire company. There are several reasons for this: 1. They will tell you about any safety equipment that you will need to wear to use the particular item you're hiring. For instance, if with turf cutter hire Devon, you will need to wear protective gloves and steel toe caps.

2. They will service their equipment regularly, which helps to ensure that it is in good working order. 3. They will provide demonstrations on how to use the tools, including using the tools safely. To find a good hire company, ask around your local area. Many people hire tools, and so you’re bound to know someone that has experience with the local hire companies. Word of mouth is a great way to establish a businesses’ worth. Tip 2: Always inspect the tool before using it Even when you know that the hire company is a decent one, this should not make you complacent.

You never know what might have happened back at the hire company (e.g. someone might have accidentally picked up a broken machine) or in transit (e.g. the tool might have been knocked around, and a safety cap broken), so you must do a visual inspection before trying to use the tool. Even if it looks fine, you still need to proceed with caution. Turn it on; make sure that everything is functioning as it should. Proceed with caution, and test slowly and carefully. The way you do this will depend on the tool and the location, for instance with turf cutter hire Devon , you will need to slowly bring the cutter into the ground and not push too hard. This is because the tool requires gentle manoeuvring , and the soil in Devon is soft.

Tip 3: Always wear protective gear Just because you're working privately (as opposed to begin at work, where you have to follow HSE rules) does not mean that you can neglect health and safety. You need to wear the required safety gear for the job. Depending on the tool, this can include steel toecap boots, overalls, heavy-duty gloves, protective googles , hard hats, and ear defenders. Again, the hire company should inform you about the exact type of gear you need to wear

Tip 4: Always make sure you're using the correct tool for the job Some tools might be very similar, and have similar functions, but are required at different times. For example, rotavators and cultivators basically do the same task. However, a cultivator is for low-intensity, small areas, while a rotavator is more industrial. Using a cultivator when you should be using a rotavator can be bad for your body as you will have to over exert. If you're unsure about the type of tool you should be using, then ask the hire company.
