More homeowners are involved in accidents involving nail guns. Injuries to the head, hand or neck,have often resulted from nail gun accidents. Nail gun injuries increased from 12,000 to 42,000 from the year 1995 to 2005, according to a study conducted by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. 20,000 professionals are also hurt every year by nail guns, according to the National Association of Home Builders. The NAHM developed a Nail Gun Safety Card to prevent injuries. Some advice they give includes that a user should learn the trigger-mechanism for the specific model they own.
According to news reports, the NAHB also advises reading manufacturer instructions, wearing safety equipment including glasses and side shields, and never putting your finger on the trigger while carrying the nail gun.
