General Tool Safety Rules

Maintain regularly

Inspect before use
Operate according to the manufacturer’s instructions
Use the proper personal protective equipment

Use the guards

Select the right tool for the job. Substitutes increase the chance of having an accident. Inspect tools for defects before use. Replace or repair defective tools. Replace cracked, splintered, or broken handles on files, hammers, screwdrivers, or sledges. Maintain tools carefully. Keep them clean and dry, and store them properly after each use. Inspect cords for defects: check the power cord for cracking, fraying, and other signs of wear or faults in the cord insulation. Check for damaged switches and ones with faulty trigger locks. Inspect the plug for cracks and for missing, loose or faulty prongs. Wear safety glasses or goggles and well-fitting gloves appropriate for the hazards to which you may be exposed when doing various tasks.

Unsafe Tool Use can be Deadly!!!
