How To Avoid Cutting Yourself - Battery Operated Saws
When it comes to safety, we need to pay attention to
everything that anyone has to say about it. Every once in awhile were
going to run into someone who has an excellent tip or piece of advice.
What I'm about to share with you about battery operated saws, could help
you from hurting your self or another person, while walking to and from
your job site.
The other day I was walking along carrying a battery operated saw, when I realized that I was pulling the trigger and turning the saw on while I was walking. To be honest with you, I didn't realize this until I had done it for a few days. The battery operated saw belongs to my wife and it's not a tool that I use often.
When I finally realized what I was doing, I stopped and sat down in the chair and started shaking my head. I couldn't believe what I was doing. I write articles about construction safety, and yet here I am, walking along with a battery operated saw, pulling the trigger while I'm walking from one spot to another.
I called my wife over and told her what not to do, when carrying this battery operated saw. She looked at me with amazement and wondered why I was telling her this. I knew what she was thinking, so I told her how I came upon this new building safety revelation.
She shook her head, like she normally does and walked away, probably wondering what a kook I was. These are things we do unconsciously, without even thinking about them. I don't know how many times I've done things like this in the past, but it's time to break this bad habit.
Could you imagine me walking by another person or having the battery operated saw catch my leg? I don't know why I did it, but if you do it, it's probably time you changed your ways. Battery operated saws are dangerous and should be treated like any other power tool, with respect.
