  1. Tool-related injuries among amateur and professional woodworkers.

    Article - En anglais

    Although woodworking is a popular hobby and the woodworking industry employs thousands of workers nationwide, few studies have examined injuries associated with this activity, especially in relation to woodshop tool use.

    We conducted a survey of amateur and professional woodworkers (n=283) in New Mexico to determine histories and rates of tool-specific injuries.

    Injuries associated with woodshop tool use were reported by 64% of all respondents.

    Hammers, chisels/gouges, and table saws were most frequently reported in association with injuries, although the highest tool-specific injury rates were associated with use of jointer-planers (4.9 injuries per 1000 person-hours of use), chisels/gouges (3.3 injuries), and drill presses (3.1 injuries).

    One third reported tool use-associated injuries that were severe enough to require professional medical attention ; 5% of all respondents suffered partial amputations.

    Courses in the safe use of shop tools may help to reduce rates of injuries among woodworkers.
