Professional engineers work safely, not just to meet rules and standards but because they don’t want to finish any shift with an injury which could put their health or income at risk.
Quality tools and safety equipment that do the job they’re supposed to do and can always be depended on are essential to achieving that aim.
Bahco’s design and manufacturing teams know how tough, unforgiving and unpleasant many work locations can be.
Their ‘Solutions for Safety’ hand tools and equipment are designed and produced to deliver the performance engineers need to work safely, no matter how challenging the conditions.
Bahco’s professional tool range includes:
Insulated tools: screwdrivers, pliers and other electricians’ tools, tested at 10,000V to ensure safe working at 1000V, all meeting IEC 60900 and many with the added assurance of VDE certification.
Ergonomic tools: designed and manufactured to fit the contours of the hand ergonomic tools, pioneered by Bahco over three decades ago, provide protection against the risk of hand or wrist muscle strain or injury.
Using these well balanced hand tools can reduce muscular stress in the hands, provide greater comfort, cut vibration and help avoid blisters and pressure points.
Non-sparking tools: Bahco NS tools are designed and manufactured for use in potentially explosive environments, where conventional steel tools might create sparks in the presence of combustible or easily ignitable vapours, liquids and dust. Because they can’t match the hardness of conventional tools they must be used with great care.
Bahco NS tools are manufactured in aluminum-bronze (Al-Br) or copper-beryllium (Cu-Be), making them both safe and suitable for use in hazardous environments.
Working at height: to help engineers avoid tools falling or being dropped from height, putting at risk anyone working or passing below, Bahco’s [email protected] range incorporates fixings which enable hand and power tools to be securely tethered to lanyards, bags, pouches and belts.
Several types of lanyard, including carabiner, fixed loop, exchangeable loop, retractable and wrist lanyards, plus backpacks, tool pouches and belts are available.
