The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has announced the release of an innovative new publication titled Straight Talk About Nail Gun Safety[DHHS (NIOSH)

Publication No. 2013-149].

Straight Talk About Nail Gun Safety uses a comic format to illustrate the potential risks of traumatic injury using nail guns and how these risks can be reduced. Real-life examples from residential building construction are used to explain nail gun traumatic injury risks related to the two different nail gun triggering systems and a variety of residential framing nailing tasks. The information in this publication is based on NIOSH focus group discussions with residential building subcontractors, safety specialists and workers; NIOSH supported research; and Nail Gun Safety, A Guide for Construction Contractors (NIOSH Publication No. 2011-202/OSHA Publication No. 3459-8-11).
