We almost had a worker loose a couple of fingers because he was wearing gloves. I got on to him three times. I should have fired him the third time. Shortly after that he was out for a week because he got his hand caught in a drill press spindle. He was a friend and I didn’t fire him but he never wore gloves again around machinery. I almost got my finger caught in a machine but yanked it out just in time. I never wore my wedding band again around machinery. The other similar rules should be followed as well.
