ADDITIONAL SAFETY WARNING FOR CONSTRUCTION DUST The updated Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 1st October 2012 now also targets to reduce the risks associated with silica, wood and gypsum dusts. Construction workers are one of the at-risk groups within this because of the dust that they breathe: silica dust is not just a nuisance, it is a real risk to your lungs! Silica is a natural mineral present in large amounts in things like sand, sandstone and granite. It is also commonly found in many construction materials such as concrete and mortar. The silica is broken into very fine dust (also known as Respirable Crystalline Silica or RCS) during many common tasks such as cutting, drilling and grinding. Breathing in very fine particles of crystalline silica can lead to the development of: Lung cancer Silicosis Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder/ Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) And breathing in fine particles of wood dust can lead to the development of Asthma. The risk of lung disease is linked to people who regularly breathe construction dust over a period of time, not on the odd occasion. To protect the lung, the COSHH Regulations sets a limit on the amount of this dust that you can breathe (called a Workplace Exposure Limit or WEL) when averaged over a normal working day.
These limits are not a large amount of dust: when compared to a penny it is tiny – like a small pinch of salt: This limit is the legal maximum, the most you can breathe after the right controls have been used.
How to reduce the amount of dust?
1. Reduce the amount of cutting by using the best sizes of building products.
2. Use a less powerful tool e.g. a block cutter instead of an angle grinder.
3. Using a different method of work altogether – e.g. using a nail gun to direct fasten cable trays instead of drilling holes first. Please always work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter out microscopic particles and use the dust extraction facility at all times. For more information please see the HSE website: http://www.hse.gov.uk/construction or cis69 [PDF]
Warning: Some dust particles created by power sanding, sawing, grinding, drill, and other construction jobs contain chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. Some examples of these chemicals are
>Lead from lead-based paints.
>Crystalline silica from bricks and cement and other masonry products.
>Arsenic and chromium from chemically treated timber. Your risk from these exposures varies, depending upon how often you do this type of work.
To reduce your exposure to these chemicals:
>Work in a well-ventilated area.
>Work with approved safety equipment, such as those dust masks that are specially designed to filter microscopic particles.
The European Physical Agents (Vibration) Directive has been brought in to help reduce hand-arm vibration syndrome injuries to power tool users. The directive requires power tool manufacturers and suppliers to provide indicative vibration test results to enable users to make informed decisions as to the period of time a power tool can be used safely on a daily basis and the choice of tool.
SEE TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS IN THE INSTRUCTION MANUAL FOR THE VIBRATION LEVELS OF YOUR TOOL.
The declared vibration emission value should be used as a minimum level and should be used with the current guidance on vibration. Calculating the actual period of use can be difficult and the HSE website has further information.

Drilling into plastic and metal
> Punch the drilling point before operation in order to avoid slipping of the drill.
> Use a metal drill bit for drilling into plastic and metal. Select a low speed and where necessary use a cooling lubricant that is available at your specialist dealer.
Drilling into brickwork/masonry
> An impact drill is ideal for drilling in normal masonry. If you want to drill into very hard concrete, you may require a rotary hammer.
> Use an inspection device to ensure that you do not accidentally drill into a cable or pipe. Wear protective glasses when drilling.
> Determine the exact position of the holes and mark them using a pencil. A cross-line laser will make this task easier for you.
> Choose a masonry drill bit with the same diameter as the fixing you want to use. Mount the drill bit securely in the center of the chuck.
> Place the drill bit tip perpendicular to the wall.If you do not exactly know the condition of the wall material, start drilling without impact and only switch the impact function on when there is resistance. Do not apply pressure to the machine until the drill bit has gripped firmly in the material.
> Drill the hole so that it is deep enough for both the fixing and the screw to fit fully. Use a depth stop if necessary. Leave the drill bit running at low speed when you pull it out. > Remove the drilling dust from the hole. This will ensure that the fixing has a better grip.
NOTE: When operating the product at low speed for a longer period, the motor may overheat. Therefore take breaks of approx. 5 minutes on a regular basis to let the motor cool down.
> Set the torque ring to screw driving mode (numbers).
> Adjust the torque setting according to the screw size and workpiece material.
