Safety measures and precautions

  1. Wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE):
    • Safety Glasses or Goggles: Protect your eyes from metal shards or debris that may be produced during cutting.
    • Gloves: Wear gloves to provide extra grip and protect your hands from sharp edges.
  2. Select the Right Tool for the Job:
    • Ensure that you are using the appropriate type and size of steel straight pattern snips for the specific material and task at hand.
  3. Inspect the Snips:
    • Before use, inspect the snips for any damage, such as bent or dull blades. Make sure the handles are secure and in good condition.
  4. Secure the Workpiece:
    • Secure the sheet metal or material properly before cutting to prevent it from slipping or moving during the cutting process.
  5. Position Yourself Safely:
    • Stand in a stable and balanced position, keeping your feet shoulder-width apart. Ensure that your body is not in the path of the cutting line.
  6. Cut Away from Your Body:
    • Always cut away from your body to reduce the risk of injury in case the snips slip or the material breaks.
  7. Use Proper Technique:
    • Use the correct cutting technique, applying steady and even pressure. Avoid overexerting force, as this can lead to fatigue and loss of control.
  8. Keep Your Workspace Clean:
    • Maintain a clean and organized work area to minimize the risk of tripping or accidentally coming into contact with other tools or materials.
  9. Store Safely:
    • When not in use, store the snips in a safe and designated place, ensuring that the blades are protected and not exposed.
  10. Be Mindful of Edges:
    • Be aware of the sharp edges of the cut metal and handle it with care to avoid cuts or injuries.
  11. Follow Manufacturer’s Instructions:
    • Adhere to the manufacturer’s guidelines and recommendations for the use and maintenance of the steel straight pattern snips.
  12. Never Force the Snips:
    • If you encounter resistance while cutting, stop and reassess the situation. Never force the snips, as this can lead to damage or breakage.
