Power Tools

Most of us have power tools at home.  They can make difficult and repetitive jobs easy, but they also cause thousands of injuries each year.  Knowing the correct operating information about these tools can help keep you safe at home.  The National Ag Safety Database has a page that describes general power tool safety as well as information about specific tools.  They also have a page regarding outdoor power equipment (mowers, chainsaws, atvs, etc) and welding.
