Text For Citation: 01 Item/Group: 002A Hazard:

OSH ACT of 1970 Section (5)(a)(1): The employer did not furnish employment and a place of employment which were free from recognized hazards that were causing or likely to cause death or serious physical harm to employees in that employees were exposed to struck-by hazards by table saw kick-blade: a) Sun Mountain, Inc. at 140 Commerce Road, Berthoud, Colorado: On or before October 16, 2018, the employer did not ensure employees were protected from struck-by hazards, in that the riving knife was not installed on the SawStop table saw while rabbeting. This condition exposed employees to struck-by hazards by table saw kick-back. Among other methods, a feasible and acceptable means of abatement is to read and follow the warnings listed in the owner's manual. Page 8 of the SawStop 10" Professional Cabinet Saw states "Use the riving knife for non-through sawing". Additionally, page 32 states "The riving knife should always be used whenever you need to make rabbet or other non-through cuts (where the blade does not cut through the top of the wood) and narrow cuts where the guard would interfere with the rip fence."
