What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Power Tool Safety

Power tools are wonderful gadgets that allow people in all realms of life to accomplish a number of different tasks. They give freedom to those wishing to tackle personal, home-improvement projects as well as to those who work in heavy industry. Despite their many, helpful uses, however, power tools can be quite dangerous if they are not used properly. Because of this, workplaces have many federally-mandated rules and regulations to which they must adhere, and home devices are plastered with warnings regarding unsafe use.

Operation Tips

There are a number of tips power tool users should follow in order to optimize their safety while using these electric devices. Operators should do the following to best protect themselves and those around them:

  • Know how to properly operate the tool before attempting to use it
  • Inspect the tool for loose or malfunctioning parts before plugging it in
  • Wear the proper personal protection equipment (PPE), such as safety goggles or closed-toe shoes
  • Keep your tools and workspace well-maintained and clean
  • Always be aware of where you are pointing the tool
  • Always unplug the tool when you are done using it and when you need to take it apart to inspect it
  • Do not wear loose clothing while operating power tools
  • Be aware of where your cords are – they can pose a significant tripping hazard
