Resource From The Texas Department Of Insurance On Woodworking
This resource from the TDI is fairly basic for those in the woodworking industry, but it always helps to focus on safety. Here are some snippets from that short PDF guide:
What should you avoid when working with woodworking machines?
• Do not wear loose clothing, work gloves, neckties, rings, bracelets or other jewelry that can become entangled with moving parts.
• Avoid awkward operations and hand positions where a sudden slip could cause your hand to move into the cutting tool or blade.
• Do not remove sawdust or cuttings from the cutting head while a machine is running. Use a stick or brush when the machine has stopped moving to remove the sawdust or cuttings.
• Do not use compressed air to remove sawdust, turnings, etc. from machines or clothing
