Power Tool Safety

In the manufacturing sector, many serious injuries are the result of hand held power tools. The list includes portable circular saws, routers, hand grinders, reciprocating saws and jig saws. These tools are very versatile and as a result are frequently used in tight quarters, on ladders, and for shaping and sizing small pieces where the work piece is held by hand. Unfortunately, with the high cutter speed a slip or kick back can cause serious injuries to body parts.
