There are plenty of accidents that happen to those who work with miter saws each and every year. Generally, these accidents occur because of the carelessness of the person who is operating the saw. A simple lapse in safety procedures by those who are using the saw can lead to serious injuries. If you own or use a miter saw, you need to make sure that you avoid these injuries by following your own set of safety procedures.
There are various steps, safety tips, and tricks that are used by saw users to keep themselves safe. It is important for each and every user to utilize these safety tips, as they need to keep themselves out of harms way. These four safety tips will help you to stay safe as you work with your miter saw.
Wear Protective Gear
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.
4. Use Guides/Never Freehand
If you want to make sure that you stay safe while using your miter saw, use the guides that are provided with 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.
The steps required to keep yourself safe while using a miter saw are simple and easy to follow. 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. The procedures will help to keep you injury free as you efficiently complete the cuts needed to complete your job.
A scaffolder has been sentenced after working at height without suitable and sufficient health and safety measures in place.
The scaffolder was witnessed erecting scaffold in an unsafe manner by a concerned passerby. Photographs were taken of him by the passerby standing on top of the scaffold with no edge protection and no harness attached to any part of the scaffold or building.
The fall height was estimated at around 20 metres. If he had fallen from this height he would have sustained fatal injuries. The scaffolder was well trained and experienced, and had the correct PPE available to him in order to work safely on the scaffold.
He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 26 weeks in prison, suspended for one year.
