    Yes but there Is always the exception out there with an accident just waiting to happen. I worked around conveyors and rotating shafts for several years and have viewed several shaft drive injuries. The worst was a young female operator operating a air gun with a long shaft and screw bit to getting to a hidden screw in a van assembly in an auto plant. Was holding the gun above her shoulder waiting for the next van to come into station, clicked the trigger and her long hair tangled onto the shaft. Being a torque air drive,it didnít stop until it reached torque against her scalp. Painful but not as much as wen the repairman forgot to reverse the travel before hitting the trigger to back out. Tore the hair and scalp right off her head leaving a large jagged bald space. Ouch. Point is, it more like a six sigma probability of 4 parts per million opportunities.......statistically small, but definitely within the realm of reality.
