In the United States alone, over 65,000 people are victims of table saw accidents each year. The impact on the victim is substantial and in some ways immeasurable. OSHA estimates that the cost to a business of a single amputation is more than $130,000 on average. But these numbers do not take into account the pain of the accident, the ER visit, the surgeries and years of physical therapy.
There is no measure for the regret a business owner, supervisor or teacher has knowing they allowed those in their care to be placed in harm’s way. The simplest fact is that SawStop is the only engineered solution to reduce these tragedies to a band-aid and a new brake cartridge and blade.
