Straight Talk About Nail Gun Safety

Uploaded by: elcosh.org elcosh.org on 06/06/2013


Publication Date: 6/5/2013

Publication Source: www.cdc.gov/niosh

Summary: This NIOSH innovative publication(No. 2013-149) is also available in Spanish as Pliatica Directa Sobre Seguridad Con Pistolas De Clavos(nomero 2013-149, SP2013). These publications use a comic format to illustrate the potential risks of injury using nail guns and how these risks can be reduced. Real-life examples from residential building construction are used to explain nail gun injury risks related to the two different nail gun triggering systems and a variety of residential framing nailing tasks. The information in this publication is based on NIOSH focus group discussions with residential building subcontractors, safety specialists and workers. For further information, check out "Nail Gun Safety, A Guide for Construction Contractors" (NIOSH Publication No. 2011-202/OSHA Publication No. 3459-8-11). This publication can be used in conjunction with safety training required by OSHA or to reinforce previous nail gun safety training. However, distribution of this publication alone will not satisfy OSHA safety training requirements.

What is the BOK?

The Body of Knowledge project is dedicated to creating a living reference that represents the collective knowledge of the Safety, Health and Environmental profession. While the preliminary work has begun, there is still more to do. The purpose of this website is to introduce subject areas that will eventually be part of the Body of Knowledge, and to gather feedback on the future direction, and ongoing assessment of what needs to be completed.
