Having worked my entire life in the construction trades I’ve seen severed arms, legs, eyes blinded, electrocutions because the elect box wasn’t locked out, concrete tilt-ups break lose from cranes and smash employees. Scaffolds collapse killing people, 100 ton Cranes tip over picking up a 55 gallon barrel of clamps, a carpenter reach under the plywood board he was cutting with the saw running cutting four fingers off, a man get smothered to death caught in a concrete form, two guys die while working in a four foot deep ditch that caved in before we could dig them out, right next to a hospital. As an apprentice I personally fell 17’ on to my back on concrete just minutes after I told my foreman what I was doing was too dangerous. Two guys fell and died on the same bridge just days before. The company held a safety meeting and complained that we were running up their insurance costs. I can write all day about safety accidents I’ve seen and companies taking short cuts that caused them. I truly don’t know how I survived this long. So forgive me for attempting to cut down on safety saw accidents before they happen unlike the “idiots” that weren’t so lucky using push blocks in the following link! https://images.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt=AwrTcd6PrtdV2hYAuuEnnIlQ;_ylu=X3oDMTByNWU4cGh1BGNvbG8DZ3ExBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNzYw--?p=Tablesaw+Accidents&fr=yhs-mozilla-002&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-002
