Pneumatic tools are powered by compressed air. Common air-powered hand tools include drills, jackhammers, chipping hammers, wrenches, grinders, and nail guns. Some of these tools shoot or create projectiles which can cause bodily injury. Additionally, pneumatic tools produce ear damaging noise and may release atomized oil and water vapor into the air. It is important to understand pneumatic tool hazards and how to deal with them.
