Metabo’s job site training highlights safe tool and accessory use
Complementary session enhances a company’s safety program
By Terry Tuerk
Metabo Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of professional grade portable electric power tools and abrasives for industrial, construction and welding applications, now offers an on-site safety and support program to review proper tool and accessory use.
The safety training seminar, which can last anywhere from 15 minutes as a job box talk to an hour and a half as a full safety seminar, highlights on-the-job safety tips as well as provides a hands-on demonstration of safe tool operation.
This free seminar, taught by a trained Metabo sales professional, focuses on the safe use and application of angle grinders and abrasives as well as general safety rules and guidelines applicable to all power tool usage.
Terry Tuerk, senior product manager, Metabo USA, said, “Since 2008, Metabo’s safety seminars have emphasized and supported many companies’ safety programs. Our seminars can supplement or be used to fill weekly corporate safety meeting obligations to help meet OSHA training requirements. They are an excellent way to gain hands-on safety training right in your facility or on your job site, while having the ability to ask a safety expert questions about specific tools and accessories being used on the job.”
Metabo’s safety training and field support covers a wide range of the manufacturer’s products including grinders, rotary hammers, cordless tools and abrasives.
Tuerk said, “At Metabo, we are highly dedicated to safety. We consider it a privilege to be able to meet the operators of our tools and help safeguard them and their coworkers. We are more than happy to bring our seminar to your work site, shop or union hall. Some companies have us come out frequently as new jobs start up or simply as a refresher. We are willing to train during any shift around the clock.”
