Home power tools. It's safe to use electric hedge clippers, leaf blowers, lawn mowers, and snow blowers. If you're using gas-powered tools, turn the engines "off" before making any adjustments. (pacemaker precautions - home) Most home power tools are safe to use, according to the following guidelines:
Keep all equipment in good condition to avoid electrical shock.
It is best not to operate power tools alone.
Be certain that the tool is properly grounded. If you use power machinery frequently, a ground-fault-interrupt system would be a wise investment. This inexpensive device is a good safety measure because it prevents a sustained electrical shock.
Avoid using any power tool locked in the "on" position, should you need to quickly turn off the equipment.
Avoid using a chain saw because your hands and body come into close contact with the electric spark-generating components. It is the spark generating components that could interact with your pacemaker.(pacemaker precautions - home)
