People using power tools that they have not been trained on, or for which access has not been granted can lead to damage of the tool, or at worst, serious injury to the user. Supervision of these tools is typically a time-consuming, costly and complex process.
Each year OSHA reports as many as 5000 fatal accidents at work, many of those are caused by incorrect tool usage.
By securing access to each tool, you reduce your liability.
Running costs can be offset by charging members for their usage, biller per second and automatically recorded as they are using the tool.
Support costs are reduced when you control access, making sure only fully trained members can access the equipment.
