SAVE ALL WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR FUTURE REFERENCE
The term "power tool" in the warnings refers to your mains-operated (corded) power tool or
battery-operated (cordless) power tool.
1) WORK AREA SAFETY
a) Keep work area clean and well lit. Cluttered or dark areas invite accidents.
b) Do not operate
power tools in explosive
atmospheres,
such as in the
presence of flammable
liquids,
gases or dust. Power tools create sparks
which may ignite the dust or fumes.
c) Keep children
and bystanders
away while operating
a power tool.
Distractions can cause you to lose control.
2) ELECTRICAL
SAFETY
a) Power tool plugs must match the outlet. Never modify the plug in any
way. Do not use any adapter
plugs with earthed (grounded)
power tools.
Unmodified plugs and matching outlets wifl reduce risk of electric shock:
b) Avoid body contact
with earthed
or grounded
surfaces
such as pipes,
radiators,
ranges and refrigerators.
There is an increased risk of electric shock
if your body is earthed or grounded.
c) Do not expose power tools to rain or wet conditions.
Water entering a power
tool will increase the risk of electric shock:
d) Do not abuse the cord. Never use the cord for carrying,
pulling or
unplugging
the power tool. Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or
moving
parts. Damaged or entangled cords increase the risk of electric shock:
e) When operating a power tool outdoors,
use an extension cord suitable for
outdoor use. Use of a cord suitable for outdoor use reduces the risk of electric shock.
f) if operating a power tool in a damp location is unavoidable,
use a ground
fault circuit
interrupter
(GFCl) protected supply. Use of a GFCI reduces the
risk of electric shock:
3) PERSONAL
SAFETY
a) Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common
sense when
operating a power tool. Do not use a power tool while you are tired or under
the influence of drugs, alcohol
or medication.
A moment of inattention while
operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
b) Use personal protective equipment.
Always
wear eye protection. Protective
equipment such as dust mask; nonskid safety shoes, hard hat, or hearing
protection used for appropriate conditions will reduce personal injuries.
c) Prevent unintentional
starting.
Ensure the switch
is in the off position
before connecting
to power source
and/or
battery
pack, picking up
or carrying
the tool. Carrying power tools with your finger on the switch or
energizing power tools that have the switch on invites accidents.
d) Remove any adjusting
key or wrench
before turning
the power tool on. A
wrench or a key left attached to a rotating part of the power tool may result in
personal injury.
