2000 construction trade students benefitted from Makita's Be Safe power tool Correct & Safe use seminars last year with 40 colleges booking these informative 90 minute demonstrations. Now is the time to book Be Safe courses for your students for 2012. Makita's experts come to your location and the demonstration is totally free.
What is Be Safe?
Based on Makita's City & Guilds approved Correct & Safe Use of Electrical Power tools course, this demonstration drives home the safety philosophy for good workshop and site practice, the right way to select and handle power tools, health and safety and PPE policy. Students are encouraged to handle the tools, ask questions and get acquainted with modern machines.
Who is Be Safe aimed at?
Students attending any construction related course will benefit including wood trades, general construction, electricians and plumbers. You can request our courses tailored to any particular trade discipline. Be Safe is valuable to first term trainees as well as more experienced students heading for jobs in the industry. Our experienced demonstrators will bring a full range of machines to illustrate the talks which can be delivered either in the lecture room or in your workshops. Power must be available and ideally a big screen for the slide support elements.
