Nail Guns Don't Care
Struck-by hazards can come from a variety of activities, work environments, and tasks including when using compressed air, pneumatic tools or powder actuated tools.
Workers must be trained and familiar with the use of power tools including pneumatic, electrical, and powder actuated tools. They should not be using these tools in the field before they have been trained.
All safety devices, guards, and switches should be kept in place and used to prevent accidental discharge of the tool.
