According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there are between 35,000 and 40,000 table saw injuries in the United States every year. Whether the injuries are caused by unsafe saws lacking proper safety shutoff features or by accidental operator error, the risks posed by these devices are serious and even fatal.
A recent announcement from the CPSC was released in response to data revealing consumers suffered on average, “11 fractures, 11 amputations, and eight avulsions every day from contact with the saw blade.”
The most common table saw injuries include:
Despite the fact that table saws have been on the market for many years and there have been hundreds of thousands of serious injuries reported, few safety measures have been enacted to protect consumers and their families.
The CPSC just unanimously voted to publish an advance notice of proposed rulemaking (ANPR) aimed at improving the safety of table saws, but those regulations have not yet gone into effect.
