Abstract
Serious - even fatal - injuries are happening to workers using these tools. What's the problem? Nail guns are popular for a reason. They get the job done in a blink of an eye. But that rapid-fire action can work against you. In a split second, a nail can enter your finger, your hand, or worse. Nail gun injuries are much more common than people think. Most injuries involve puncture wounds to hands or fingers, but serious, even fatal, injuries are also associated with the use of these tools.
