Construction Tool Precautions

Wrenches, hammers, pliers. Pruning saws and tools. Crowbars, screwdrivers. Hand hooks, files, and scrapers. Each of these tools might be in your toolbox, and each one needs to be used safely, for the right job. Read the operator's manual before using the tool and operate the tool according to the manufacturer's instructions. Use only tested and approved tools. If a tool is defective, remove it from service, and tag it clearly "Out of
service for repair". Ensure that you have been properly trained to use the tool safely.

The right tools should be utilized for the right job.
Keep tools in good working order.
Any tools with frayed cords or without a grounding plug shall be taken out of service.
Do not use tools that you do not know how to operate.
