Health & Safety

Health & Safety
  Always switch off the router and isolate from mains the supply when changing cutters or making adjustments to the router.
Health & Safety
  Remove loose items such as locking bars and allen keys from the router and adjacent working surfaces.
Before re-connecting to the mains supply, make sure the power switch is in the ‘off’ position.
Ensure that the power cable is kept well away from the cutter and cannot tangle or catch on the workpiece, jig or fittings.
Health & Safety
  Check before starting to cut that clamps will not obstruct the path of the router. When cutting through the full thickness of the material, ensure that the cutter cannot foul the vice, bench edge or other obstacles beneath the workpiece.
Health & Safety
  Always wear eye protection such as goggles or a full face visor.
Always wear ear defenders if routing for a lengthy period.
Do not allow objects to dangle over the work area, i.e. do not wear loose clothing such as a tie. Roll sleeves back and ensure long hair is tied back.
Health & Safety
  Keep fingers clear of the cutter and never try to slow or stop the cutter by hand.
Always keep other people away from the work area to avoid being startled by sudden interruptions.
Practice the procedure first before starting to cut and concentrate carefully on what you are doing throughout the operation.
     

Health & Safety Continued

Health & Safety Continued
  For prolonged routing operations use dust extraction equipment, particularly with materials such as Medium Density Fibreboard (MDF). Alternatively use a ventilated filtered visor, which also acts as an eye protector.
Never leave cutters lying where they can cause injury or be damaged against other tools. Always return cutters safely to a storage rack, wallet or case.
Health & Safety Continued
  Before switching on, and between each operation, check that all locking knobs, nuts and screws are fully tightened. Check that anti-vibration springs are fitted to each locking nut as original specification and consider fitting them to those machines not supplied with them as standard.
Health & Safety Continued
  When cutting circles, do not allow the cable to twist excessively. Regularly switch off and unwind the cable in the reverse direction.
Before making any adjustments, make sure the router has come to a complete stop and remove the plug. Never leave the router running unattended.
Health & Safety Continued
  Always feed the cutter into the material against the rotation of the cutter when using the router portably.
If the cutter is protruding from the base of the router, i.e. fixed at a set cutting depth, do not switch the router on with the cutter in contact with the workpiece. When the operation has been completed, a simple stand can be used to avoid accidents while the cutter is still revolving.
