Health Tip: Use Tools Safely

(HealthDay News) -- When working with hand tools, it's important to keep safety in mind.

The National Safety Council offers these suggestions to reduce your risk of injury:
  • Make sure you know which tools are appropriate for each job.
  • Keep your tools clean and in good condition, and maintain them according to the maker's instructions.
  • Unplug and turn off any power tool before performing maintenance or changing a part.
  • Wear clothing that can't get caught, and always use protective gear.
  • Use any guards and shields that come with the tools.
  • Store all tools safely and out of the reach of children.
  • If using an electrical adapter, never cut the three-prong plug off. And never use a two-prong adapter with a three-prong tool.
