Nail gun safety continues to be a much discussed topic on construction job sites. Whether its a powder actuated fastener or a pneumatic nail gun, these tool fire nails at velocities high enough to seriously injure or kill people. Proper training and subsequent handling of these tools are needed in order to prevent injuries or death.


NIOSH has recently published its first ever "NIOSH Comic", titled Straight Talk About Nail Gun Safety. This can be downloaded as a PDF by clicking on the title.


Please don't forget that nail gun users must receive proper training! For more information including a guide to nail gun safety and training, visit the NIOSH section of the CDC's web site at
