Health and safety training and technologies
Our programs about minimizing risk on the jobsite
Construction is dangerous and at Hilti we take health and safety very seriously.
Our products are all designed with health and safety in mind and we also offer a range of training programs to find out more about minimizing risk on the jobsite.
WHY IS HEALTH AND SAFETY TRAINING IMPORTANT
We offer basic health and safety on the jobsite, how to use angle grinders safely and customized training for your own needs.
The emphasis is on hands-on training so you can experience our products and solutions for yourself. Each participant receives an attendance certificate.
As an employee it’s important to understand how to avoid accidents, but also what to do if an accident happens. As an employer it’s important to understand your legal obligations to assess and reduce risks onsite, and how to inform your employees of these risks.
Our trainers are certified Hilti engineers and specialists.
WE’RE REDUCING VIBRATION
Long-term exposure to vibration can result in serious health problems such as hand-arm vibration syndrome.
So we’ve developed our Hilti Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) technology, which can reduce vibration by up to two thirds compared with conventional tools.
Take a look at our vibration data sheet, which can help to select the safest and the most productive tool for your application. It contains comprehensive vibration, noise and productivity data.
WE’RE REDUCING DUST
Construction dust can create an uncomfortable working environment and cause serious health diseases.
Dust exposure can also reduce jobsite productivity and shorten the life span of tools and consumables.
Our Hilti Dust Removal System (DRS) helps to keep construction dust under control.
All the systems components are perfectly matched to maximize the amount of dust removed at its source and collected efficiently by the vacuum removal system.
SOLUTIONS FOR WORKING AT HEIGHTS
Working at heights is one of the most common causes of injury in the construction industry.
To help reduce these risks, we’ve developed:
- Cordless power tools
- Our DX pole tool
- Rapid "twist and lock" installation channel assembly systems
- Laser measuring and alignment tools
- Our Hilti Active Torque Control (ATC) technology
