Hand and power tools make work easier and more efficient. However, there are a number of hazards involved in using these tools that can cause significant injuries. A few include amputations, lacerations, puncture wounds, eye injuries, electrocutions and many other physical impairments. In the US, nail guns alone account for an estimated 25,000 emergency room injuries among workers
Regular inspections ensure that all tools and equipment are in good working condition. Workers must undergo training to gain adequate knowledge on handling these tools so they are used solely for their specific functions. Protective equipment can also serve as an additional defence against tool hazards.
