I worked at a log house factory back in the 70"s
and saw a guy get about half his hair yanked out
on a large pantograph router, busted his head
up badly when it smacked the side of the machine.
He was lucky all he lost was hair.
I have long hair and keep it tied in a pony tail
most all the time, especially when working.
I used to. Then my router started climbing my hair. Fortunately it
stalled before it got to my face. I walked into the first barber shop
(or what passes for one these days) I saw and asked for a #2 buzz cut.
The guy looked at me like I was nuts. I asked him what the problem was.
He had no idea what "#2 buzz cut" meant. I thanked him for his time,
went down to Wally World and shelled out 20 bucks for a clipper, put the
#2 comb on it, and problem solved.
Ties can also be a problem. CFO of a company I worked for was working late
one night and got his tie caught in the portable shredder. The shredder
chewed its way up his tie as he madly tried to power it off. He nailed the
tied to the wall above the shredder. Made you think before shredding.
