Five (05) Thumb Rules Of Power Tool Safety - (For Installers)
Below are the essential thumb rules for all the fellow installer and we would appreciate if the property owners too help every installation team member to follow extreme safety precautions,
Assess your work area Before you use any power tool in your home look around for potential hazards.
01) There is water near the electrical equipment you are using
02) Electrical leads can be tripped over
03) There are any hazards behind the wall you are about to drill into.
Being aware of your immediate environment and avoiding risk is the most effective way for you to stay safe
Use the right tool for the job
Choosing the tool appropriate for the job is necessary to avoid incidents and injuries. Trying to “make do” with the tools that you have isn’t smart – all tools are designed for a specific reason and not using them properly may cause you harm. You could overheat your power tool or cause it to malfunction.
Do not use electric tools in wet conditions unless they are approved for that use and use tools that are double-insulated or have a three-pronged cord.
Do not use damaged tools
Checking and inspecting of power tools before you do anything is crucial to identify defective or damaged equipment. Damaged equipment can also cause severe injuries such as cuts, punctures, blindness or electrical shock. Never carry a power tool by its cord as this will cause damage to the wiring.
Operate tools according to the manufacturers’ instructions
Equipment manuals help guide users on how to handle and operate tools as intended. You should read and comply with manufacturers’ guides to avoid mishandling of tools that lead to otherwise avoidable accidents.
Provide proper personal protective equipment (PPE)
PPE helps to ensure your safety by reducing any physical hazards caused by power tools. You should wear appropriate PPE to avoid electric shock, burns, blindness, or respiratory and skin diseases when working around electricity, flammable gases, volatile liquids, or other explosive materials.
