Many tasks at the workplace require the use of tools. Tools are very helpful when used correctly but they can be hazardous if used improperly. When using tools at work always follow these rules, only use tools that you know how to use. Don't use a tool that's new to you. Always use the right tool for the job. Don't use the wrong tool just because it's convenient. Only use tools in the way they're designed to be used. Don't take risks and use tools in ways they were not designed to be used. And only use tools that are in proper working order. Inspect tools before use to be sure they're in good shape. If a tool is damaged in any way, have it repaired or replaced.
