Safety Precautions for Using an Industrial Panel Saw

Regarding safety, an industrial panel saw is similar to other woodworking machines: to avoid injury, you have to take precautions while using it. To help prevent injuries in the workplace, woodworking factories make sure employees are aware of proper safety procedures, but the independent woodworker should also be apprised of them. If you have never owned a panel saw, and you are shopping for panel saws for sale, be sure to observe the following safety measures when you finally set up the machine and start operating it.

Wear short sleeves. Long sleeves prevent wood dust from coating your arms, but they could get caught in the blade of a horizontal panel saw and pull your arm into the cutting plane. A vertical panel saw, which has a cover over the blade, does not present this danger.

Avoid wearing gloves. Like shirtsleeves, gloves could be caught in the blade of a horizontal model and pull the hands into the cutting plane. Instead of offering protection, gloves are dangerous to wear when using a horizontal panel saw.

Pin back long hair and jewelry. Like shirtsleeves and gloves, long hair and jewelry can be caught in the gears of the machine. This warning also applies to horizontal models.

Put on goggles. An industrial panel saw creates a large amount of wood dust, some of which may be expelled at high speeds. Consequently, the operator should wear safety goggles that protect the eyes.

Apply hearing protection. As you shop for panel saws for sale, you should also shop for hearing protection. Operating any type of woodworking saw without hearing protection could cause acute or chronic tinnitus.

Do not set the blade too high. If you buy a horizontal model, make sure the blade is high enough to make the cut, and no higher. Setting the blade too high creates a wider cutting plane that exposes the hands and arms to injury.

Set the equipment firmly in place. If you use a vertical model, be sure the equipment is set firmly in place before you use it. Otherwise, it could tip over during operation.

Use push sticks when necessary. When ripping through narrow woodwork, using a push stick removes the hands from the cutting zone, helping to prevent serious lacerations.

Know where the emergency ‘off’ button is located. Most woodworking machines have an emergency ‘off’ button that cuts off all power to the machinery. If an injury is happening or the machine is overheating, pressing the button can prevent it from becoming worse.
