Safety Tips For Power Tools
Power tools are a man’s best friend. They save time, offer accuracy when being used and make life easy whether you use them as part of your everyday job or DIY project. However, they can also be an occupational hazard if not handled properly. Here are some quick tips on how to make sure you make the most of your power tools without compromising safety.

Handling
Never carry a tool by its power cord or hose (if one is attached). This will eventually have a negative impact on the integrity of the connection between the tool and the cord/hose.

Never yank a cord to disconnect
Again, as with handling, this will affect the integrity of the power cord or hose. It will also have a negative impact on the power socket and tool’s plug.

Solid footing
Make sure you are on solid footing when using a power tool. This includes when climbing ladders or on scaffolds. Also make sure the floor is not slippery. If there has been a spillage in the work area, make sure it is cleaned up before using the power tool.
