Safety Tip: No Long Sleeves
As a vocational instructor, I am bothered by all the videos showing "professionals" wearing long sleeves. Not too many years ago, a neighboring school had a student's arm get sucked into a radial arm saw, while the student was wearing a hoodie with long sleeves. The sleeve got caught in the blade. The arm was cut-off just below the elbow (instructor was only 5' from the student). Any rotating equipment should have a NO LONG SLEEVE safety rule.
