POWER TOOLS

*Know the tool you are using, its application, limitations and potential hazards.

*Select the proper tool for the job.

*Don't tackle a big job with an undersized tool - make-shift tools can cause accidents.

*Ground all tools unless double insulated. A double insulated tool usually has a plastic or non-conductive outside housing and 'double insulated' embossed into the case or stamped on the manufacturer's label.

*If the tool is equipped with a three-prong plug, it should be plugged into a three-hole receptacle or extension cord. Never break off the ground prong, it's there for your protection.

*Always remove adjusting keys and wrenches before turning on the tool. It's a good practice to make adjustments only when the tool is unplugged.

*Keep your work area free of clutter and debris. These can become tripping hazards.

*Tool guards are designed to make tools safer. Never remove or wedge a guard out of the way.

*Construction sites change constantly. Be alert to potential hazards in your work area.

*Avoid accidental start-up. Make sure the switch is OFF before plugging in the cord or when the power has been interrupted.

*Make sure saw blades, drill bits, router cutters, etc., are sharp, clean and regularly maintained. Use only recommended accessories and follow the manufacturer's instructions.

*Do not force the tool. Each tool can do a better job at its designed speed. Do not over-reach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times.

*Dress properly. Avoid loose clothing that could catch in moving parts.

*Secure your work. Use clamps or a vise to hold your work whenever practical.

*Never use a tool with a frayed or damaged cord.

*Do not attempt any field repairs. Return broken tools for proper repair.

*After use return the tool to its original carrying case and store in a dry, secure location.

FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES AND YOU WILL FIND THAT TOOLS PERFORM BETTER, OPERATE MORE SAFELY, AND LAST LONGER.
