Your tools: Safe and sound

Provided By:

(NC)-One of the major elements in the successful performance of work around the home, both inside and outside, is the proper choice and use of tools.

In this respect, the seal of the Canadian Standards Association is a reference, because it indicates that the tools bearing the seal respect the Canadian Standards of manufacturing and safety, and are equipped with a ground wire or double insulation. This is very practical.

Here are a few tips from Hydro-Québec to help you use your tools safely:

• The Power cord: Do not handle the tool by its cord. This tends to damage the cord (and the damage is not always visible).

• The plug and the handle: Grip the plug (not the cord) to disconnect the tool and use the handle to move it about.

• Damaged Tools: Never use a tool if the electric cord has been damaged or if the ground wire is twisted or cut. Likewise, never use a damaged extension cord.

• Three-pronged plug: Never cut or fold the rounded ground prong of this part of the tool.

• Power cord: When using an electric saw or drill, keep the electric cord behind you to be certain that you do not accidentally cut into it.
