Make sure the operator uses the tool safely.

(1) You must make sure the operator:
(a) Inspects the tool before using it, as recommended by the tool manufacturer;
(b) Uses the tool according to the manufacturer's instructions;
(c) Keeps the tool unloaded until just before using it;
(d) Unloads the tool at once if work is interrupted after the tool has been loaded;
(e) Does not leave a tool or powder load unattended where it would be available to an unauthorized person;
(f) Never points a tool (loaded or unloaded) at any part of a person's body.
A magazine or clip fed tool is not considered loaded until a powder load is actually in the ram (firing chamber).
(2) You must make sure tools are not used in an explosive or flammable atmosphere.
(3) You must do this if the tool misfires:
(a) Hold it firmly against the work surface for thirty seconds; then
(b) Follow the instructions in the tool manufacturer's instruction manual.
(4) You must hold the tool perpendicular to the work surface when fastening to any material.
This does not apply if the tool manufacturer recommends a different technique for a specific job.
