Learn about the advantages of cordless tools versus corded/pneumatic in the workplace.

DID YOU KNOW THAT SLIP, TRIP AND FALL INCIDENTS:

  • Represent 15% of all accidental deaths, the second leading cause behind motor vehicles (according to OSHA)
  • Could cost an average of $20,000 per case
  • Negatively affects the employers by increasing industrial insurance premiums, costs associated with training replacement worker, and overall loss of productivity and business

DID YOU KNOW THAT ELECTROCUTION INCIDENTS:

  • Represent 5% of all occupational deaths and are the third leading cause of private sector deaths in the construction industry (according to OSHA)
  • May be reduced if proper protocol is practiced. In order to reduce the risks of contacting electrical current, you must learn to recognize and identify electrical hazards. Once a hazard has been identified, it must be corrected.
  • Common electrical hazards include improper grounding, exposed electrical parts, inadequate wiring, damaged insulation, overloaded circuits, damaged tools and equipment.
 

FACTORS DRIVING CORDLESS ADOPTION:

  • No wasted time searching for temporary power
  • Gas and emissions limit indoor use for generators
  • Routine maintenance required
  • Shared by all trades – further limiting availability
  • Extension cords – restricted mobility, trip hazards, poor condition can create shock hazard, long cords decrease tool power output and performance
  • Battery platform compatibility with many different solutions
  • Cost savings
