Nail Guns Toolbox Talk (UK) Mobile App
A fast and efficient way to drive nails into wood or other materials is with the use of a nail gun, nail gun or nailer.
How does it work?
Nail gun tools are typically driven by compressed air (pneumatic), electromagnetism, highly flammable gases such as butane or propane, or, for powder-actuated tools, a small explosive charge. Although nail guns boost productivity and are extremely efficient, thousands of nail gun injuries a year are caused by their use, particularly among carpenter apprentices. Nail guns Toolbox Talk (UK) outlines the risk factors that make injuries likely to occur. The extent of training and the type of trigger system are factors, particularly when using a multi-shot versus single shot trigger. Accidents can happen when the trigger is squeezed unintentionally, nail penetration through lumber, nail ricochet, bypassing safety mechanisms, or recoil from being dropped or falls. Nail guns are dangerous tools and should be used only by trained personnel
