I've got it. The Bozo is lifting up the blade guard. Clearly an OSHA violation.

I would assume so since it's required to be in place.



1910.243(a)(1)(i)
All portable, power-driven circular saws having a blade diameter greater than 2 in. shall be equipped with guards above and below the base plate or shoe. The upper guard shall cover the saw to the depth of the teeth, except for the minimum arc required to permit the base to be tilted for bevel cuts. The lower guard shall cover the saw to the depth of the teeth, except for the minimum arc required to allow proper retraction and contact with the work. When the tool is withdrawn from the work, the lower guard shall automatically and instantly return to covering position.

I know the guard is required...but what says you can't lift it when you start your cut?

I said I assume so since it's required. I don't imagine OSHA is going to require a safety feature that's optional. I'll let someone else test the theory.

Some cuts are impossible with out lifting the guard. It's allowed.
