Workplace Health and Safety has conducted a comprehensive job safety analysis for operating a screw gun, e.g. fixing drywall materials and how to change a shank bit with risk control measures developed for identified hazards per WHS hierarchy of controls.

  • WHS consultation with employees on health and safety matters to identify potential hazards with operating an electric screw gun and ensure electrical hand tool safety

  • WHS consultation and participation processes ensure adequate health and safety communication

  • Pre-operational inspection of screw gun per electrical tools inspection checklist, e.g. how to check tools and equipment are free from damage such as damaged electrical cords

  • Damaged tools and equipment shall have an out of service tag placed on it with procedures for reporting faulty equipment in the workplace implemented

  • Do not alter or modify a screw gun, e.g. removal of screw gun handle will affect tool safety

  • Inspect shank bit for signs of wear and damage per tool safety checklist, replace if necessary and dispose of damaged shank bits appropriately

  • Screw gun operation per screw gun SOP focuses on screw gun control measures to reduce the level of risk

  • Workplace environmental hazards, e.g. confined space and working at heights

  • Working at height on ladders, aluminium mobile scaffold and elevated work platforms when operating a screw gun

  • Hazardous chemicals and hazardous products used in connection with operating a screw gun

  • Hazardous manual tasks in connection with the operation of a screw gun

  • Personal protective equipment, e.g. respiratory protective equipment, protective clothing, eye protection

  • Health and safety training for workers, e.g. tool safety training

  • Workplace housekeeping per housekeeping policy and procedures

  • Legislative and regulatory requirements for compliance with WHS legislation, e.g. work health and safety regulations, managing electrical risks at the workplace code of practice and power tool safety standards
