Watch this video to learn all the ins and outs of tool safety across a variety of hand tools. 

 

Most pros are safety obsessed. Anyone who makes a living working with tools knows you can end up hurt or even in the hospital. Who hasn't used the wrong tool every once in a while or modified one to make it work for the job you are trying to get done? But when people choose speed over safety, they end up getting hurt. Using your tools safely means keeping them in great condition, inspecting them and always using the correct tool for the right job.

Safety Basics:

  1. Always wear safety gear that's right for the job you are doing.
  2. Always wear your safety glasses, hard hat, steel-toed boots, ear protection, gloves, or back protection.
  3. Never wear loose or bagging clothing. A  sleeve or pant leg could get caught in the machinery.
