Safety Minute | The Right Tools for the Right Jobs

It may seem obvious to use the proper tool for a given activity, but there are actually many ways workers can (and often do!) get it wrong. At One Energy, we don’t simply use the tools we CAN, but we use the tools we SHOULD –for safety, quality, and even financial reasons.

To demonstrate this concept, today’s Safety Minute focuses on using the right tools and methods for stripping high-voltage cable. See how a “stubborn electrician” might go about it, using fewer tools that may cost less, but are lazy, ineffective, and dangerous – then watch as we show how to use the RIGHT tools for this job. ️

Takeaways from this episode include:

  • A tool that works is not always the right tool for the job
  • Invest in the right tools to remove safety risk and improve quality
  • Injuries are more expensive than the price of the right tools
