I know, you don’t have workers shooting each other with nail guns, but this clip will definitely have them thinking twice about the when, where and how of using these powerful tools.

This over-the-top action sequence from the ‘80s action classic “Lethal Weapon 2” provides the perfect attention-grabber for you to lay out the proper safety procedures for using nail guns on your worksite, as well as other power tools.

NOTE: For our purposes, the lesson starts at :30, when Murtaugh is knocked into the construction site.


How have you seen a nail gun or other power tool used incorrectly?

What common mistakes have you seen or heard of people making with power tools?

What power tools do you commonly use?

What are the proper safety procedures for those tools?

How can you use power tools more safely in the future?
