Electrical safety

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 will reduce risk of
electric shock.
Avoid body contact with earthed
or grounded surfaces, such as
pipes, radiators, ranges and refri-
gerators. There is an increased risk
of electric shock if your body is
earthed or grounded.
Do not expose power tools to rain
or wet conditions. Water entering a

power tool will increase the risk of
electric shock.
Do not abuse the cord. Never use
the cord for carrying, pulling or un-
plugging the power tool. Keep
cord away from heat, oil, sharp
edges or moving parts. Damaged
or entangled cords increase the risk
of electric shock.
When operating a power tool out-
doors, use an extension cord suit-
able for outdoor use. Use of a cord
suitable for outdoor use reduces the
risk of electric shock.
If operating a power tool in a damp
location is unavoidable, use a re-
sidual current device (RCD) pro-
tected supply. Use of an RCD re-
duces the risk of electric shock.
Personal safety

ing 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, alco-
hol or medication. A moment of in-
attention while operating power
tools may result in serious personal
Use personal protective equip-
ment. Always wear eye protec-
tion. Protective equipment such as
a dust mask, non-skid safety shoes,
hard hat or hearing protection used
for appropriate conditions will re-
duce personal injuries.
