Not on my watch.
There’s one thing you’ll never forget during your career: the names of the students who had severe accidents in your classroom. And a lot of those accidents happen on table saws. SawStop table saws reduce the risk of serious accidents and improve classroom safety, allowing you to focus on teaching your students the skills they’ll need when they hit the workforce.
Schools are especially vulnerable to expensive table saw accidents due to unguarded machinery, inexperienced student operators and the increased likelihood of legal damages.
