Power Tool Safety

Written by Dave markel

There are a number of things that every wood worker needs to know when they are working with power tools (to a lessor extent, hand tools). Some things are plainly obvious but others are often overlooked.

Onrepparttar serious side, planning ahead may be what save your life. Some ofrepparttar 116265 power tools available are very powerful and often rotate at extremely high speeds. Hard carbide has very little trouble with soft flesh. I have worked in remote areas where it was several hours torepparttar 116266 hospital and safety was an absolute priority.

Remember what might be obvious now may become very clouded when injured and you are in shock. The list below (not necessarily in order of importance) will greatly reducerepparttar 116267 chance of injury.

Readrepparttar 116268 instruction manuals that come withrepparttar 116269 power tools that you buy and learn aboutrepparttar 116270 tool. There is always information specific torepparttar 116271 safe operation and other precautions associated with that particular tool. After all repparttar 116272 manufacturer know their tools better then anyone. Wear ear, eye and if needed face protection. This is obvious, for face and eye's, remember hard steel, soft flesh. Hearing protection is often forgotten because it is such a gradual change. The simple fact is that running wood working tools for long durations without hearing protection is going to reduce your hearing.

Do Not wear loose clothing or have long hair hanging free. This can result in severe injury if hair or clothing gets caught inrepparttar 116273 machine. People have been scalped from industrial machinery by not takingrepparttar 116274 right precautions.

Keepingrepparttar 116275 shop neat and tidy will reducerepparttar 116276 chance of slip and fall accidents. Lot ofrepparttar 116277 time while inrepparttar 116278 shop you are focused onrepparttar 116279 task at hand and not realize where your feet are. Always sweep up saw dust or scraps or better yet install a dust collection system to collectrepparttar 116280 wood debris fromrepparttar 116281 tools and dispose of it.
