How to prevent nail gun injuries

Nail guns are responsible for 37,000 emergency room visits per year in Louisiana and throughout the country. Of those visits, 68 percent are made by workers who are hurt using the tools on the job. In some cases, workers are hurt because a nail was discharged when a person didn't intend for that to happen. In others, they were hurt because a nail hit a solid surface and ricocheted.
