CRAFTSMAN® PPE GUIDELINES

TAKE PRIDE IN USING YOUR TOOLS SAFELY

HERE ARE A FEW COMMON THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND THAT OFTEN PREVENT US FROM BEING ABLE TO SHARE YOUR PHOTOS:
  • Proper PPE should always be worn appropriately when any person(s) is in a photo with a CRAFTSMAN® tool (regardless of whether it’s in use or not, and including bystanders). 
  • Never stand a tool up on its battery when any person(s) is also in the photo. 
  • Children cannot use the tools (or be nearby) in visual content.
  • Eyeglasses and sunglasses do not count as proper safety PPE.
  • Never rest a tool on an unstable surface.
  • Must ensure hand placement is in the correct place on the tool, especially the handle (if applicable). 
  • Proper protective footwear should always be worn.
Always reference your CRAFTSMAN® tool manual for proper tool usage and installation of required tool accessories (handles, guards, etc.).

We love it when our proud doers tag us in their photos showing off their CRAFTSMAN® pride.

In order to feature photos in our marketing efforts and on our social media channels, the proper PPE and safety guidelines must be followed.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS:

  • Tools operators and other workers shown in construction sites settings should be shown wearing high-visibility apparel, hard hats, and work boots.
  • Use of hearing protection should be shown for certain applications where the workpiece and accessory can produce high noise levels – i.e. drilling holes in metal studs with a hole saw.
  • Hearing protection should be added for certain applications or environments where the operator is exposed to moderate noise levels for extended periods of time – i.e. user operating drill in a factory environment.
  • Tool operators shown working at height should be shown wearing appropriate fall arrest gear and using only tethered tools.
  • Use of gloves recommended for heavy use where heat due to friction can cause sockets to get hot.
