When you are working with a demolition hammer, also called a jackhammer, you should always have a couple pieces of safety equipment.  You need gloves to protect your hands from the vibration of the machine.  You also need a helmet to protect your head should the hammer slip.  You should always wear protective goggles to protect your eyes from flying debris while you are using the hammer.  There may be other types of safety equipment required, please see the instructions inside your machine for more details.

When would I use a Demolition Hammer?

You would use a demolition hammer when you want to remove items such as concrete.  You could also use the hammer to open a hole in the basement floor for a drainage system or a sump pump.  They are also necessary when you are installing piping and wiring under a home that is located on a cement slab.
