For over 75 years, Hilti has been championing health and safety in the construction industry.
We understand how hazardous construction sites can be, whether you’re working at heights or in difficult-to-get-to corners. That's why we follow a well-defined Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) process along the development of new products. This not only keeps construction sites safer, but improves working comfort and overall productivity.
Our products are built to last and designed to withstand the harshest jobsite conditions. But they are also designed to protect the user and to improve working comfort. As well as products and technology, we also provide guidance, advice and industry training to help keep your construction sites safer and more productive.
When reviewing your own health and safety processes, we recommend following the "STOP Principle", which provides practical strategies to minimize the impact of challenges such as dust, vibration, kickback, risk of cuts and green building.

Managing health and safety using the "STOP principle"
Substitution is the elimination of the risk by using alternatives. By doing so the root cause of hazards can be avoided.
Technical measures are machinery, tools or technologies to help improve health and safety.
Organizational measures are made possible due to different working methods and improved work organization.
Personal protective measures, which are needed where risks remain.
