Essential Safety Tips for Working with Power Saws and Electric Cutters

Power saws and electric cutters are wonderful tools for sawing through cables, copper tubing, PVC, drywall, fiberglass, metal, and more. They are convenient and save you time and effort by easily cutting through things that would be difficult or impossible for you to do by hand.

 

At the same time, these tools carry a risk of injury so it is important to always abide by strict safety procedures. Additionally, it is important that anyone – whether it is your family member of employee – who might be working with these tools is trained for safety. Here, we present our best practices for making sure you don’t cause an unnecessary trip to the emergency room.

 

Safety Tips for Power Sawing

Protect Yourself! There are plenty of things you can wear to help keep yourself safe. Always wear goggles to protect your eyes from any stray objects that might fly off of the saw. If needed, you can even wear a full face shield. If you’re going to be using the saw for an extended period of time, using hearing protection. Make sure that all jewelry and loose clothing is secured so that it doesn’t get wrapped up in the saw and cause an issue.

 

Make sure that your saw is in proper working order. It should never be too heavy for you to use, and it should always have a nice, sharp blade so that it can cut through things without effort. Dull blades can cause it to stall and fall out of your hands, and even to possibly kick back. If there is anything wrong with the saw, get it repaired or replaced so that it doesn’t backfire and end up hurting the person who is using it.

 

Keep your power saws out of the reach of people who have not been trained to use them, and especially children. Make sure they are properly stored when they are not in use, and secured in a place where they will not be tempting for children to play with them. Don’t loan your tools out to people who don’t have proper experience or protection to use them safely. Taking a few simple steps can prevent a major injury.
