Before beginning work with any tool or equipment on a construction site, it’s important to ensure you’ve received the necessary safety training.
Even when working with seemingly easy to use tools, it’s important that workers are properly trained and supervised if necessary.
A recent incident is proof of what can happen when working with tools and equipment in construction. A man in his sixties, presumably experienced with saw use, severely injured his hand while working with a drop saw.
The incident happened about 127km North West of Dalby in Queensland and the man had to be rushed to hospital for treatment.
