The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) have made available a Spanish version of Nail Gun Safety—A Guide for Construction Contractors.

The document is meant to help construction employers and workers prevent work-related nail gun injuries. 

Internal and external bodily injuries can result from unintended nail discharge; nails that bounce off a hard surface or miss the work piece and become airborne; and disabling the gun's safety features, among other causes. Injury prevention is possible if contractors take steps such as using full sequential trigger nail guns, establishing nail gun work procedures, and providing workers with personal protective equipment.
