Hi, this is Jon on behalf of Expert Village. In this video clip, we would be talking about general safety. First off, the power sweeper that I would be using in my demonstration probably differs than the one that you have. So you always want to double check with your users guide to make sure you are using it properly. When you are finished using your tool or if you are going to be preforming any maintenance on your tool, you want to make sure and unplug it. This is going to prevent accidental starting or any type of electric shock. You always want to pay close attention to any warning labels that are on your tool. You want to make sure you fully understand how to use your tool before you use it. Lastly, your power sweeper is not a tool and should not be used as a toy. You want to make sure not to let children to play with it or use it. You want to keep it out of reach of children as well. All and all the power sweeper is a very safe tool if used properly.
