of vibrating or reciprocating tools may result in vibration-induced circulation
problems in the hands. Always follow safe operating procedures. Using hand
protection (i.e., insulated gloves) and taking frequent breaks can help
minimize but not guarantee against injury. Operating these types of tools in
cold weather or with a tight grip will reduce the period of operation before
risking potential injury. Individuals with a tendency to suffer from poor
circulation, frequently cold fingers or itchy hands should closely monitor the
condition of their hands. If symptoms appear, seek medical advice immediately.
