GENERAL
POWER TOOL SAFETY WARNINGS
WARNING:
Read all safety warnings
and all instructions.
Failure to follow
the warnings and instructions
may result in electric shock, fire and/or
serious injury.
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.
Work area safety:
a) Keep work area clean and weU 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.
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 will 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
residual
current
device (RCD) protected supply.
Use of an RCD
reduces the risk of electric shock.
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, non-skid 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.
e) Do not overreach.
Keep proper
footing
and balance
at all times. This
enables better control of the power tool in unexpected
situations.
f) Dress properly.
Do not wear loose clothing
or jewelry. Keep your hair,
clothing
and gloves away from moving
parts.
Loose clothes, jewelry or
long hair can be caught in moving parts.
g) If devices
are provided
for the connection
of dust extraction
and
collection
facilities,
ensure these are connected
and properly
used.
Use of dust collection can reduce dust-related
hazards.
Power tool use and care:
a) Do not force the power tool. Use the correct
power tool for your
application.
The correct power tool will do the job better and safer at the
rate for which it was designed.
b) Do not use the power tool if the switch
does not turn it on and off.
Any power tool that cannot be controlled
with the switch is dangerous
and must be repaired.
c) Disconnect
the plug from the power source
and/or the battery
pack
from the power tool before making
any adjustments,
changing
accessories,
or storing
power tools. Such preventive safety measures
reduce the risk of starting the power tool accidentally.
d) Store idle power tools out of the reach of children
and do not allow
persons unfamiliar
with the power toot or these instructions to
operate the power tool
Power tools are dangerous in the hands of
untrained users.
e) Maintain
power tools. Check for misalignment
or binding of moving
parts, breakage
of parts and any other condition
that may affect the
power tool's operation.
If damaged,
have the power tool repaired
before use. Many accidents are caused by poorly maintained power tools.
