Each year, many workers are injured by discharged nails when working with or near nail guns. Nail guns are most commonly found in the construction and manufacturing industries.
Most incidents occur when the nail gun is set to bump fire or ‘bounce fire’ mode. This allows nails to be driven into an object by holding the trigger in the firing position and pressing the gun’s contact tip against the workpiece.
