Keep all warning descriptions and instruction
manuals for future reference.
The term "power tool" in all of the warnings listed
below refers to power-operated (wired) power tool
or battery-operated (wireless) power tool.
a) Workplace Safety
1. Keep the workplace clean and well lit.
Cluttered and dark areas invite accidents.
2. Do not operate power tools in explosive
environments, such as in the presence of
flammable liquids, gases, or dust. Power
tools create sparks which may ignite dust or
3. Keep children and bystanders away while
operating a power tool.Distractions can
cause you to lose control.
b) Electrical Safety
1. Power tool plugs must match the outlet.
Never modify the power 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
2. Avoid body contact with earthed or
grounded surfaces, such as pipes, radia-
tors, and refrigerators. There is an increased
risk of electric shock if your body is earthed or
3. Do not expose power tools to rain or wet
conditions. Water entering a power tool will
increase the risk of electric shock.
4. Do not abuse the electrical cable. Never
use the cable for carrying, pulling or
unplugging the power tool. Keep cables
away from heat, oil, sharp edges, or moving
parts. Damaged or entangled cables increase
the risk of electric shock.
5. When operating a power tool outdoors, use
an extension cord suitable for outdoor use.
Use of electrical cables suitable for outdoor
use reduces the risk of electric shock.
6. If you have to operate a power tool in
a damp location, use a residual-current
device (RCD) protected supply. Use of an
RCD reduces the risk of electric shock.
c) Personal safety
1. Stay alert; watch what you are doing and
use common sense when operating a
power tool. Do not operate 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.
2. Use safety equipment. Always wear eye
protection. Safety equipment such as dust
masks, non-skid safety shoes, safety helmets,
or hearing protection used for appropriate con-
ditions will reduce personal injuries.
3. Avoid accidental starting. Ensure the switch
is in the off position before plugging in,
inserting the battery pack, or when carrying
and transporting the tool. Carrying power
tools with your finger on the switch or plugging
in power tools that have the switch on invites
4. Remove any adjusting keys or wrenches
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.
5. Do not overreach. Keep proper footing
and balance at all times. This enables better
control of the power tool in unexpected situ-
6. Dress properly. Do not wear loose cloth-
ing or jewellery. Keep your hair, clothing,
