I am NOT taking sides with the school. BUT. That saw without the safety equipment is TEACHING you people how to be aware of what can happen.
When we were at school it had a perfect record of NO accidents since it opened. The year I went, we had 3 major injuries. The same FOOL cut his thumb in two, then planed his little finger OFF from knuckle to nail. No safety equipment in word WILL save that IDIOT from an injury. He was TOLD many times, he was shown mant times and yet he needed to learn the hard way ! The third injury was a piona stool being turned on lathe TOO fast. BLEW apart, broke the guys nose, marked the cement wall and destroyed work on OTHER side of shop (30 ft away) It was a bad year, I still remember these accidents today. (It was 35 years ago, idiots name was “JOHN ”
Go ahead and REPORT the school, just don’t be surprised if you have POOR marks at the end of the year. Its Your call.
I have never been an advocate of running and tattling,
