Power Tools: Nail Down Safety First       Archived

  

Pneumatic nail guns are common tools now readily available to consumers, extending to the public what had been primarily a potential work-related hazard. To characterize nail-gun injuries in work and nonwork settings, CDC studied data on patients with nail-gun injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments during 2001–2005. The results indicated that an average of 37,000 patients were treated for nail-gun injuries each year, with 40 percent of injuries occurring among consumers and that injuries in nonwork settings had tripled from 1991 to 2005. Created: 4/13/2007 by MMWR. Date Released: 6/22/2007. Series Name: A Cup of Health with CDC.
