The commitment to a Safer Work Place is a shared goal for many companies and tool brands, Ergodyne has been a leader at the forefront of this push with one of the most extensive collection of tool tethering and storage solutions for working at heights. Klein Tools is the brand most trusted by electricians, many working at heights so this is a very logical partnership. Ergodyne has tons of tool storage solutions, FR clothing and other safety items that just make a lot of sense to work with existing Klein tools and help in new product development for both brands.
Klein Tools was productive, launching four new products recently. Expanding upon the concept of multi-bit screwdrivers, Klein has come up with the 7-in-1 Nut Driver.

Klein Tools recently did an online survey of professional electricians, 201 responded 40% union, 60% non-union. All with varying years of experience and were asked questions about skill levels they perceive in the work force and levels of training. It would appear for the majority the feeling is there is a need for more training and higher skill levels on the job-site.
One comment that caught our eye and we would agree with “Electricians are at a renaissance as new technology constantly replaces old standards and practices,” said Mark Klein co-president of Klein Tools. With rapid changes to tools, processes and building technology it’ll be more important than ever before to get proper training before these changes are made. The responsibility should fall in part on the manufacturers of the new tools and/or building products to ensure training on use and installation is readily available as well as effective.
