ˆ Operators and bystanders should wear approved eye protection; some manufacturers recommend the use of safety
goggles to protect eyes from flying particles.
ˆ Operators and bystanders should wear hearing protection when using or in the general vicinity of powder actuated
tools.
ˆ Anti-vibration gloves should be worn with prolonged use and consideration should be given to tight confines and tool
recoil as it relates to hand protection.
ˆ Warning signage should be used in the work area to notify others of powder actuated tools in use.
Tool Inspection:
ˆ Tools should be inspected prior to use.
ˆ Tools should be used with the correct shield, guard or attachment recommended by the manufacturer.

Tools should not be loaded until immediately before use.
Tools should not be altered or changed.
Only manufacturer's compatible fasteners, loads and tool parts should be used.
Verify the tool is not fully or partially loaded with a load or fastener prior to handling.
Do not fire a tool without a fastener.
Never place hand or other body part in front of the muzzle, as the piston and/or fastener may pass through the
operator's body in the event of accident discharge.
Point tool in a safe direction at all times.
Do not close tool against work surface. Tool should be manually closed, with hand away from muzzle end to prevent
unintentional discharge.
Always hold tool perpendicular to work surface to limit the possibility of a fastener bouncing off the surface and striking
operator or bystander.
In the event you decide not to make a fastening after the tool has been loaded, always remove the load first, then the
fastener.
Never use powder actuated tools in an explosive or flammable atmosphere.
Loaded tools and shots should not be left unattended, and must remain locked in a toolcase or toolbox when not in
use.
Loads should be kept in separate and secure containers labeled "EXPLOSIVES - Authorized Personnel Only".
Spent loads and misfires should be placed in water for 24 hours prior to disposal.
Test Fastenings & Material Compatibility:
ˆ Test fastenings should be made with the lightest load level designed for use in the tool. If the lightest load does not
set the fastener, try the next highest load level until the proper level is attained. This will eliminate the possibility of an
overpowered fastener fully penetrating your work, thereby injury someone.
ˆ Perform the center punch test if you are unsure of your fastening material. This will ensure the work can contain your
fastening.

ˆ Tool should not be fired within three inches (3") of the edge of a concrete base material or within one-half inch (1/2")
in steel. Do not attempt a fastening application closer to another previously inserted fastener, i.e., 3" in concrete, 1/2"
in steel. (Refer to operator's manual for guidance.)
ˆ Do not fasten into a concrete base material less than 3 times as thick as the fastener penetration unless otherwise
permitted and never fasten into steel base material thinner than the fastener shank.
ˆ Do not fasten into cast iron, tile, glass or other brittle materials.
ˆ Do not fasten through pre-drilled holes.
ˆ Do not fasten into a spalled area as fastener may bend and bounce off the spall and strike operator or bystander.
Place fastener at least 3 inches away from spalled areas.
Miss Fires
ˆ In the event a load fails to discharge, the tool should be depressed for at least 30 seconds to ensure protection to
operator or bystander in the event of a delayed load discharge; then the load should be removed, placed in water for
24 hours and disposed.
ˆ Jammed, stuck or broken tools should not be unloaded or disassembled; improper handling may cause it to discharge,
striking operator or bystander.
ˆ Point the jammed tool in a safe direction; tag and lock up the tool and call your equipment vendor/supplier for
assistance.
This document hereby certifies that I have been instructed on the items listed above and I have had an
opportunity to ask questions. I fully understand the DPR requirements for the use of powder actuated tools.

Prueba de sujetadores y compatibilidad del material:
ˆ Los sujetadores se deben probar con el menor nivel de carga diseñado para el uso en la herramienta. Si la carga más
liviana no fija el sujetador, pruebe con la carga que le sigue en nivel hasta que se obtenga el nivel correcto. Esto
eliminará la posibilidad de que un sujetador sobrecargado penetre por completo en la obra y lastime a alguien.
ˆ Realice la prueba del punzón de perforar si no está seguro del material del sujetador. De esta manera se asegurará
que la obra pueda contener el sujetador.
ˆ No se debe accionar la herramienta dentro de las tres pulgadas (3") del borde de un material de concreto o dentro de
la pulgada y media (1/2") de material de acero. No intente fijar un sujetador cerca de otro sujetador insertado
previamente, es decir, 3" en concreto, 1/2" en acero. (Consulte el manual del operador si desea una guía).
ˆ No fije el sujetador en un material de concreto de menos de 3 veces el grosor de la penetración del sujetador, salvo
que se permita lo contrario y nunca fije el sujetador en material de base de acero que sea más delgado que la espiga
del sujetador.
ˆ No fije en hierro fundido, losas, vidrio u otros materiales quebradizos.
ˆ No fije a través de orificios pre-taladrados.
ˆ No fije en un área fragmentada ya que el sujetador puede doblarse y rebotar del fragmento y golpear a un operador o
espectador. Coloque el sujetador al menos a 3 pulgadas de las áreas fragmentadas.
Cuasi disparos
ˆ Si el disparo de la carga falla, se debe mantener la herramienta presionada durante al menos 30 segundos para
protección del operador o espectador en el caso de una descarga demorada, luego quite la carga y colóquela en agua
durante 24 horas antes de desecharla.
ˆ Las herramientas atascadas, trabadas o rotas no se deben descargar o desarmar. El manejo indebido puede hacer
que se dispare y lastime a un operador o espectador.
ˆ Apunte la herramienta atascada en un sentido seguro, rotule y guarde la herramienta bajo llave y pida ayuda al
proveedor/distribuidor del equipo.
