Pneumatic nailers, more commonly referred to as “nail guns,” have certainly made work more efficient but their speed and power has led to serious injuries on the job. Nail guns are a leading cause of injury for carpenters and responsible for an estimated 25, 000 work-related emergency room visits each year.
