Power tools are common pieces of workplace equipment that greatly reduce the time it takes to complete tasks. Extension cords allow you to operate these power tools in places not easily reached by using just the cord on the tool itself. However, both can pose a serious risk to you if they're not handled, operated, or maintained properly. The good news is, most accidents and injuries are often preventable by properly inspecting both before every use, as well as following safe work practices.

This course is designed to familiarize you with potential hazards related to power tools and extension cords, as well as help you understand what preventive measures you can take to stay safe while handling and operating them.
