One of the main ways to keep your body safe is to wear protective gear as you use your miter saw. You need to make sure that you have your goggles on each and every time that you make a cut. The protective eyewear will help to protect your eyes from flying debris that can projectile off of the saw as you cut into your wood. Protective clothing pieces, including gloves and long sleeve shirts, will help to keep your body safe from these projectiles.

2. Use your Blade Guard

Your blade guard is an important safety piece for your miter saw. The blade guard will help you to keep your hand away from the blade, helping you to avoid any potential injuries. You should never remove the blade guard from your miter saw.

3. Slow it Down

You need to make sure that you are taking your time as you make each and every cut with your miter saw. If you go at a slow pace, you will be able to stop yourself from potential injury; the slower you are going, the more likely you are to catch hand misplacement before your hand reaches the saw.

A majority of the accidents that occur with miter saw happen as people attempt to free-hand their cuts. You should never freehand the cuts that you make with a miter saw, as this leaves your hands vulnerable to the blade.

Unfortunately, multiple people sustain injuries while using this saw because of their negligence toward these simple safety procedures. If you own or operate a miter saw, you need to make sure that you follow these own safety procedures.
