In everyday life, we often have to use different tools, and it may be a passive or an increased risk of. And when it start to forget, this danger immediately begins to show his grin, causing sometimes fatal wounds. even professionals, who use the tool almost daily, sometimes forgetting vigilance, immediately begin to feel his insidiousness of dismissive attitude.
When the tool is in the hands of inexperienced, it becomes a terrible weapon, and can pose a threat not only to the, with whom he hands, but to others. Who watched the comedy "Operation Y", one could see as a "shot back" Shura of jackhammer. This is a prime example of the use of the tool is not ponaznacheniyu. But to each instrument manufacturer's instruction manual for competent and safe to work with it. That's what it is now and will be a conversation.
How to protect your eyes from injury in a dangerous work
purchasing tool, people hardly read the accompanying instructions or read a part of it, counting, that everything is clear and their ability to be enough to fulfill the intended work. They are more interested in the page with the stamp of guarantee. This neglect to careful reading of the instructions may cause damage to the acquired instrument or consumable material will be spoiled. In addition, the user may sometimes suffer.
Working with a drill, sander or punch, confess, that you will never use protective goggles. And just for your eyes people manufactured these glasses. Apparently they are more worried about your eyesight, than you. When working with such tools formed huge number of tiny particles and pieces, that fly in different directions with a fairly high speed and, quite enough of one of them, to ruin your eyesight. Inconvenience, which causes the use of goggles with the instrument, this farfetched opinion, otgovorka, and talk about the economic costs for the purchase of glasses is inconvenient in comparison with the possibility of eye injury. Of current eyewear can be worn even on top of ordinary glasses. These include and glasses "Ekolyuks", having lateral protection and the ability to push the wishbone, which makes them universally applicable. These glasses are made of transparent polycarbonate, which is resistant to shocks emitted particles, resulting in the processing of products. A flying velocity of particles in the processing of products from metal or concrete can reach 45 meters per second,, eye received an injury at a rate may be fatal to humans.
our safety when dealing with high-risk instrument depends only on us
Possible Cause eye injury when working with the instrument can be an elementary non-compliance with safety instructions. So, careless attention to the site, where you put off, but still continues to rotate the tool may result in raising clouds of fine debris, which is also safe for your eyes.
In any electric tools for its cooling has special air vents and if they hit trash by careless with respect to the tool, then this debris can cause damage to the instrument when it is switched on, which in turn can result in injury to.
One of the indicators of quality of the tool is its passive safety
All the world famous tool manufacturers are constantly working to create safe products, conducting numerous tests in laboratories and on construction sites. And if we apply the automotive terminology, the security Toolbar can be divided into passive or active. So patented by «DeWalt» black - tool yellow color, It is not only a corporate color, which should be more recognizable for branded products and protect it from counterfeiting, but also create a passive safety of its. In view of the sharp contrast of yellow tools and usually gray-colored building site it is impossible to miss on your way. Since normally such an instrument is plugged in, there may be a possibility of electric shock when the attack on the cable, by which it is connected.
By innovations by applying passive safety tool change the power cord color can be attributed to the previously applied black to red. Color change, which does not fulfill any protective function, but the red color in the human mind has always been associated with danger and, so being able to walk on the cord sharply reduced. Changing the color of the power cord for the first time began to hold firm «METABO». She also belongs to the innovation in the use of non-standard solutions for passive safety tools, ie the equipment of his «METABO CODE» system, which encodes a tool against unauthorized use it. The basic idea of this system was - the inability to put into operation the tool left at the time of the host unattended, but, Consequently, and injury to curious.
Personal protective equipment and innovations in their designs, stand guard your health
Another way to increase the safety of the tool is a way to, embedded «BOSCH» firm for angle grinder «GWS 24 – 230 LVL». Applied in the machine system «Kick Back Stop» allows the automatic and instantaneous tripping of the motor when it jammed disc while working. A jamming of the grinding disc from the working machine is the biggest nuisance, as it can lead to rupture of the circle and its fragments injury working with the tool, as well as those, who is nearby. Another of the types of protection of personnel from possible injury is the inability to turn on the instrument without pressing an additional button before starting. This protection makes it impossible samovklyucheniya tool after disconnection, when the voltage is lost in the network. All these increase the cost of protection issued instruments, but this price can not be compared with our health, they are designed to keep.
And a special place in injury prevention at the corner shlifmaschinkami is mandatory to establish the guard before starting work on it, which can save a person from injury possibly even incompatible with life at break of the grinding wheel. chunks, break the cycle, fly with a huge destructive speed. Therefore, the use of protective means, such as goggles, special gloves and shoes, and possibly helmet builder will help to keep your health when working with high-risk tool.
Of course, the use of a helmet to protect against head injury when working with tools in the home, It can cause sarcastic smirk from your family, but you, of course, know, that is protected by your head, and not someone - that someone else and, therefore, these grins, do not pay any attention to what.
The use of specialized shoes can protect your feet from injury when operating a jackhammer or a hammer, when fallen off a large chunk of concrete falls on your feet. It does not say, that prevent such incidents safely, but to prevent possible injury, because these shoes have special socks, that can withstand the shocks and significant burden on them, protecting leg. To all this we can add, that some firms, engaged in the production of specialized footwear, equip its puncture pads, which have increased resistance to high temperatures. In addition, they seek, that the shoes were easy and convenient. maybe, the use of these protective devices in the home in short-term performance of work on the tool is not as necessity, for working professionals, dealing with every day and almost no issue from his hands.
Protect people from electric shock when working with tools
During the execution of various construction and repair work becomes necessary the use of electric tools. In the process of mixing the liquid materials, such as paints, solutions, adhesives, various mixers. They can be specialized, and sometimes the conventional electric drill is used with fixing the cartridge in its metal mixer. This is where you can watch for danger, since not everyone knows how to protect his class drills. Although it contains a tool passport, but it is usually passes by your attention, if it is written for someone else, not for you. And it is necessary to know, because drill 1protection class has a power cord plug third prong, and work with this drill without grounding and personal protective equipment (insulating gloves) strictly prohibited. With drill, which has 2 and 3 protection class, you can work without gloves, and in any case it can not be grounded. How visible, that the main means of protection against human defeat its electric current is earthed, when it is provided in the data sheet and insulating gloves. They are not too expensive, to experience for yourself the amperage.
Special attention should deserve the power cords and cables, Connect electric tool. This is a more sensitive tool accessories, since under constant influence of the environment. It may occur, something to put or something heavy drop, and this may cause a short circuit and the consequences, which are not predictable. While causing damage rather difficult, because the wires in it are double-insulated and nylon braid to protect against break, which allows you to pull it. However, after prolonged use of wire in the cord may break from the frequent bends or be killed, although external examination can not detect it. And if it does not work when connected to power source, then this could be the same case, when defective cord, and not a tool. In case of failure of the power cord power manufacturers do not recommend to lay a faulty cord, and insist on a new replacement cord. Made twisting as if she had not been performed qualitatively, can not replace a holistic cable. Therefore, in order to electrical cord at a twist must be replaced in the near future
Respiratory protection from hazardous substances
In carrying out such work, sander as cutting tiles, work with the hammer on the punching of holes in concrete or punching Stroebe wall flush laying electric wires, we see, as a way of clouds of dust and if there is no protection against it, a large amount of it may be in our respiratory organs. Famous world companies began to produce tools, which occurs during operation and dust collecting fine particles in a special container with subsequent purification. These containers generally provided with polishers, and drills and hammer drills are equipped with special suction devices. for example, firm «BOSCH» began producing hammer drill «PSB 650 OUT", which is equipped with a microfiltration system. This system allows to remove from the punching zone openings dust and fine particles, sending them to a special waste bin, and the air is passed through a microfilter.
Well, and if you have the tool has no such protection, then you want to buy a respirator or advise, in a pinch, apply elementary gauze bandage when performing dusty work. Though they are not fully, but nevertheless will save your lungs from dust.
Proper use of the instrument of appointment will allow to operate without injuries
A very large number of injuries occur when replacing the consumables electrified instrument. Trying to forcibly stop the powered-off sander, pressing the lock button gears or stopping the rotation of the drill chuck by holding the hand, all these attempts lead to injury. Also, when changing a drill or a circle you must disconnect the cord, to avoid inadvertent switching tool.
When using the tool connected to the compressor it is also necessary to use only as intended. Do not use it for cleaning of equipment and clothing from dust, which is very often done, and as a result leads to eye injury.
The working clothes must also be order
Never operate the tool in overalls, you put yourself at risk of being injured, as the old tracksuits, jackets are not designed to protect your body from the hot and large fragments of workpiece. They can themselves cause injuries, eg, flushing from metal sparks. Overalls manufactured from a special material, which is impregnated with water-repellent composition. It does not burn and can withstand high temperatures, as well as resistant to chemicals. Of course, in the home, such clothing is not needed, but the acquisition of the elementary working suit just need to work with the instrument. The above tips, help avoid large errors when working with the tool, and keep your health.
