FAQs

Why use insulated tools?

Insulated hand tools are essential when working with a live energised circuit as they offer protection from electrocution. VDE approved hand tools allow you to confidently work with circuits that may need to remain live, such as railway tracks. If working with live circuits or the possibility of exposed live components, insulated tools are vital as without them you could risk electrocution, injury or even death.

How to ensure an insulated tool is safe to use

• Before use, always perform a visual check ensuring that there are no cracks, peeling nicks or cuts present as this will expose the inner material and increase the risk of injury.
• Always store and keep insulated tools away from sharp objects that could possibly damage the insulation.
• Regularly clean and maintain them to ensure maximum protection and prolonged life.
• Keep them away from heat sources

Safety

Avoid touching parts of a tool that are not covered by the insulated material when working with live circuits and always wear protective clothing such as gloves and boots for maximum protection.
