Accident Investigation Summary
Summary Nr: 170248389Event: 07/31/1990Employee'S Finger Nearly Severed By Circular Saw
Employee #1 was ripping a 1/2 in. piece of siding material (wood board) with a Makita 7-in. circular saw. He was holding the board with his left hand and ripping the board with his right hand. While his left hand was holding the board behind the saw, the saw kicked back, cutting and nearly severing four fingers on his left hand. The saw blade had been adjusted to cut 2 in. thick material and had not been re-adjusted for the thinner 1/2 in. material. The fact that the material was being held improperly was also a contributing factor to the accident.
