10.    Remove adjusting keys and wrenches. Form the habit of checking to see that keys and adjusting wrenches are removed from the tool before turning it on.

11.    Avoid accidental starting. Do not carry a plugged‑in tool with a finger on the switch. Be sure the switch is off when plugging in.

12.    Outdoor use of extension cords. When a tool is used outdoors, use only extension cords suitable for use outdoors.
