Saws
Serious injuries can result from the use of portable and stationary power saws. Accidents may occur if the operator is inexperienced, or if the blade is not properly guarded.

The easiest way to avoid injury is to use appropriate safety equipment, such as goggles, earplugs, eye protection and dust masks. Do not wear sandals, open-toed or canvas shoes when working with saws. Avoid loose-fitting clothes that might become entangled in a saw and remove rings and other jewelry.
