Synopsis
This free to download booklet explains the fundamental concepts of the new traffic light system for labelling hand held tools that was developed by Dr David J. Edwards, Loughborough University. The concept has now been formally adopted by the Hire Association Europe (HAE) and a new label scheme will be available shortly to purchase from them; a scheme that is co-managed by the Off-highway Plant and Equipment Research Centre (OPERC). It is essential that any practitioner who owns or operates tools reads and fully understands this booklet.
