1. “I think mandating SawStop’s technology across the board is unnecessary and counterproductive. Table saws are only part of the power-tool safety problem. Almost any tool can cause a serious injury when used improperly.”
2. It is not the machine’s fault that people are getting hurt; it is their own fault. Technology alone can’t prevent risk. There also needs to be a sense of alertness from the operator.
3. Evaluation claim
4. This is an understandable claim. He makes a strong point that machines are not always to blame for workplace injuries, and in most cases it is the fault of the worker. If there are only safe saws then it is very possible that workers could stop being as alert and, when not working with a safe saw, be more liable to injure themselves. All of this together makes it a fairly successful claim.
