Pneumatic tools are powered by compressed air. Common air-powered hand tools include jack hammers, 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 release atomized oil and water vapor into the air. This module describes pneumatic tools hazards and how to deal with them.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Define a "pneumatic tool"
  • List examples of pneumatic tool applications, and explain the advantages of pneumatic tools
  • Identify and describe safety hazards and precautions associated with the use of pneumatic tools
  • Identify and describe safety hazards and precautions associated with compressed air

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What are some examples of pneumatic tools?
Jackhammers, chipping hammers, wrenches, grinders, and nail guns are some examples.

What are some advantages of pneumatic tools?
They are clean, reliable, durable and long-lasting, inexpensive, versatile, easy to set up, and require no electrical insulation.

What PPE should be used when working with pneumatic tools?
