The first and most important rule to nail gun safety, always read the operator's manual before using a tool. This will give you an understanding of the tool itself, including parts, operation, as well as any special circumstances associated with operation.
Once you have read and understood the manual, make sure that you put on OSHA required “Z87” safety goggles. Depending on the conditions with which you are working, make sure you utilize other personal safety equipment, such as a hard hat and hearing protection.
Next, remember to always keep the tool pointed away from yourself and others, especially when it's connected to air - also remember to keep hands and other body parts away from the nose of the nail gun. Always store idle tools out of reach from minors.
It's also important to note that you should never use a tool that leaks air or needs repair. This includes not running a pneumatic tool over the recommended air pressure.
Never load a fastener with the trigger or safety element depressed - and do not drive fasteners on top of other fasteners, or at too steep of an angle. Always be careful when loading fasteners.
