General power tool safety warnings
Warning! Read all safety warnings
and all instructions. Failure to
follow the warnings and
instructions listed below may result in
electric shock, ﬁre and/or serious injury.
Save all warnings and instructions for future
reference. The term "power tool" in all of the
warnings listed below refers to your mains

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.

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
