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 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
ground fault circuit interrupter
(GfcI) 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.
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.
