HEALTH AND SAFETY
We help make construction sites safer and more productive
DESIGNED TO BE ERGONOMIC AND PREVENT ACCIDENTS
We understand how hazardous construction sites can be, whether you’re working at heights or in difficult-to-get-to corners.
That is why we are designing tools to help prevent accidents and protect the health of workers using them. This keeps construction sites safer but it also saves time onsite, keeping builds productive and on time.
Our innovative technologies are designed to help with:
Hand arm vibration syndrome (HAVS)
Hilti Active Vibration Reduction (AVR) technology reduces vibration by up to two-thirds compared to conventional tools. It also helps to avoid related health problems and allows our tools to be used for longer.
Working at height
Working at height is one of the most common causes of injury in the construction industry. Our systems can help, including cordless power tools, the DX pole tool, rapid “twist and lock” installation systems and Hilti laser measuring and alignment tools.
All our products are designed to be ergonomic, making them more comfortable and easier to use.
Noise onsite is a risk to hearing and we continually work to reduce the noise levels of our tools and technologies.
INTERNATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY STANDARDS FOR CONSTRUCTION
Health and safety is very important to us at Hilti. We design our technologies to keep our customers safe as well as productive.
But we are also convinced that international standards for health and safety are needed for the whole of the construction industry worldwide.
That is why we are working with our customers, partners and leading trade bodies to build common guidelines and goals.
We have joined ENCORD, which is a wide network of European construction companies, researchers and developers and a great platform to discuss and launch new ways of keeping construction sites safe.
We’ve also established the HSE Manager Conference, which is a shared platform for the construction industry, where we can share experiences, best practice and talk through the needs of our customers.
