YOUR SAFETY

Before you begin a project, make sure you plan ahead and anticipate any safety issues. Following are some important safety tips that can apply to most projects. Since every project is different, do not consider this a comprehensive list of all the safety issues that you may need to address.

General Safety

  • Do not attempt a potentially dangerous project when you are tired, irritated, sick or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Be aware that certain prescription or even over the counter medications could impair good judgment and manual skills.
  • Please note that although fairly simple, the installation and connection of the entire radiant heating/warming floor or walkway/steps or driveway system should be performed and checked by a qualified professional, even if not specifically required by your local/national building and electrical codes and ordinances. NEVER attempt to install it yourself unless you are completely familiar and competent with house wiring: even when local code allows owner or handyman installation. Make sure you check local building codes for your town before planning construction projects.
  • If improperly handled, there can be a risk of 120 or 240 VAC electric shock hazard which may cause serious injury or death.
  • NEVER leave unprotected, unfinished and energized electrical connections exposed and unattended, even for a brief moment.
  • Wear approved eye protection when working with power tools or striking tools such as hammers. When working in dusty situations, wear a dust filter mask over your mouth and nose.
  • Keep all blades, bits and other cutting parts sharp on both power tools and hand tools. Dull tools can require you to apply extra force, which can lead to injuries.
  • Make sure you have a safe work environment that is well lit and free from obstructions and interference from clothing, long hair and jewelry.
  • Turn off breakers or remove fuses when working on all electrical projects.
  • Keep all blades, bits and other cutting parts sharp on both power tools and hand tools. Dull tools can require you to apply extra force, which can lead to injuries.
  • Make sure you have a safe work environment that is well lit and free from obstructions and interference from clothing, long hair and jewelry.
  • Turn off breakers or remove fuses when working on all electrical projects.

    Power Tools

    • Read the instructions thoroughly and make sure you understand proper operation and safety issues related to each tool. Use a tool only for its intended application. Make sure you know each tool's limitations.
    • If a tool requires grounding, make sure it is properly grounded. Do not use 2-prong adapters.
    • Unplug saws, drills, routers and other power tools when changing or installing blades, bits and other attachments.
    Keep your hands safely away from blades, bits and moving parts as you operate a power tool and your eyes protected.
