Plan! Include tools needed, parts and all materials
 Buy the best quality tool you can afford.
 Always use the tool for the job in which it was designed
 Throw away broken tools or tools with loose handles (or fix ’em)
 Wear safety goggles with things that even might harm your eyes
 Always remain set and balanced when working with tools
 Make sure the screwdriver fits the screw
 Keep fingers and hair well away from moving blades or bits
 Read instruction manuals if provided with tool
 Always cut away from your body and all body parts
 Make certain the wrench fits the job and is adjusted correctly
 Pull the wrench toward you when possible
 Work in clutter free, well lit environments

Ideal Hand Tools

 Use one hammer to strike another hammer
 Pry nails or pry wood toward you
 Operate power tools near flammable products
 Use screwdrivers as pry bars, scrapers punches or chisels
 Use a wrench, screwdriver or other tool as a hammer
 Make pliers act like wrenches (a major cause of hand injuries)
 Touch a saw blade or drill bit immediately after use
 Use a make-shift handle extension to add power to turn a wrench
 Alter or “customize” a tool
 Use a worn out tool or one with worn teeth or blades
 Hold your work in one hand while cutting/drilling with the other

The most important tip to remember, however, is to make sure all your tools are returned to their toolbox or drawer sharp and clean. Also, make sure the little kids cannot get into your tools … but they’re never too young to learn the safe way to use them!
