Take head when using your tools and equipment
Your electrical measuring tools and equipment are precision tools and therefore they must be used with extreme care. Do not set your tools down too quickly or it may cause damage to them. Also, invest in a rubber mat that you can set the tools on and be sure you are careful not to use the tools in conditions that are too hot, too cold, and/or too humid.
