Tool Safety

COVID-19 outbreak: As of 21st March 2022 all major restrictions have been lifted. Our task programme will continue as before.

From 1st April we have significantly increased the number of volunteers permitted in our minibus. We hope this will make it easier for you to come on task with us. In line with guidance for public transport, face masks are encouraged but are no longer required.

Lateral flow testing is no longer generally available. As before, volunteers who are experiencing symptoms should not attend tasks

The same general safety principles apply to all the tools that LCV uses:

Carrying Tools

You should always carry tools

Don't overload yourself or others.

Choosing Tools

When choosing a tool, make sure

Using Tools

When using a tool, make sure

Storing Tools

If you are not using a tool, make sure
