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.
If operating
a power
tool in a damp
location
is unavoidable,
use a
ground fault circuit interrupter
(GFCI) protected
power
supply.
Use of a
GFCI reduces
the risk of electric shock.
PERSONAL SAFETY
Stay alert, watch what you are doing and use common sense when
operating a power tool. Do not use the power tool while tired or under
the influence of drugs, alcohol, or medication. A moment of inattention
while operating power tools may result in serious personal injury.
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.
Prevent unintentional
starting. Ensure that the switch is in the OFF
position before connecting to a power source and/or battery, 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.
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.
Do not overreach. Keep proper footing and balance at all times. This
enables better control of the power tool in unexpected situations.
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.
If devices are provided for the connection
of dust extraction
and
collection facilities, ensure that these are connected and properly used.
Use of these devices can reduce dust-related hazards.
POWER TOOL USE AND CARE
Do not force
the
power
tool.
Use the
correct
power
tool
for your
application.
The correct
power tool will do the job better and more safely at
the rate for which it was designated.
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.
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.
