Like when a break goes, and the saw is left in the on position.
This happens at a worksite with extension cords.....
Yes, accidents, usually happen when we are in a hurry.
Turning off a saw.......whenever it is not in use, is important.

Even careful people can get burned.
I was back in the shop tonight, just a few minutes ago my hand almost
hit the TS blade.
I was prepping some wood, and threw the offcut in the bucket, but it
missed. I didn't know it landed one step away. I left the saw running
while I went to pick up the next piece to rough cut. And that's when I
stepped on the offcut rolled my ankle and wound up with my hand inches
Some of you may say I should have shut it, but when doing a lot of rough
cutting I just grab the next piece... but I get it.
Too close for comfort.. My ankle will be sore tomorrow... when the
adrenaline stops pumping.
