Tool Specific - Safety Information

The Power Tool Institute is dedicated to educating the public about the safe use of power tools. PTI also works with various agencies to encourage high safety standards in the manufacture of power tools.

Although most power tools are not complicated to operate, basic safety practices must be followed, and the tools must be kept in proper operating condition, whether they are in the hands of a professional tradesman, a beginning do-it-yourselfer or a vocational student. The demands of safety apply to all.
