Safety is our most important priority, from our plant to your work-site.
Protect Your Eyes
Always use eye protection when working with striking tools. And, if someone is nearby, they must also use eye protection. This is especially the case with striking tools, but should be a policy in any work-site.
Use the Tool Correctly
Striking tools should not be used to strike another tool or hardened object. Proper form is important to avoid glancing blows, under strikes, or over strikes. If you must strike another tool, such as a chisel, then we suggest the striking face of the correct hammer have a diameter about 3/8″ bigger than the face of the struck tool. Soft face hammers are always a good alternative.
Never Keep Damaged Tools
Remove damaged tools from the work-site and discard them. Once they are damaged, they may not work as intended and could cause injury. This includes, but is not limited to cracks, dents, chips or “mushroom” face on hammer tools.
Always Use the Correct Tool for Your Purpose
Tools are designed with specific purpose in mind. When you deviate from that, you may cause yourself or others nearby harm. Always use the correct tool for your purpose.
