This pamphlet from New Zealand’s Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE) has a good overview of cut-off saw safety. It mentions laws that are applicable only in New Zealand, but otherwise it’s a good rundown of cut-off saw safety pointers and guidelines, from saw operation and blade safety to what you should wear when you’re cutting. (If you’re cutting pipe, you’ll want to fast-forward to page 20 for some safe pipe cutting techniques)
