Pamela Gilbert was quoted In National Consumers League article applauding the US Consumer Product Safety Commission’s historic safety ruling that would impose a mandatory safety standard for electric table saws, which cause 50,000 partial or full amputations each year.
“The technology to almost entirely do away with serious injuries from table saws has been available for over two decades. Members of the power tool industry, sadly, have resisted safer designs despite many opportunities to do so,” said Gilbert. “The delay has led to hundreds of thousands of permanent, debilitating injuries that could have been prevented. It’s time for the industry to step up and do the right thing for their customers.”
