Straight Talk About Nail Gun Safety

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.
