(Source: SDG&E)
Chances are, you use power tools for projects at work and home. Working with power tools requires skilled instruction and training and can be deadly if not properly used or maintained. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) provides these power tool safety tips:

  1. Use ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) with every power tool to protect against electric shocks.
  2. Do not use power tools with an extension cord that exceeds 100 feet in length.
  3. Never use power tools near live electrical wires or water pipes.
