      For me personally I need to put away tools when I'm done using them.

      I have a bad habit of setting things on the top of the pile so I can use them again quick.

      Not a big deal until it is a razor sharp inch wide chisel falling 30 inches to the ground towards my toes.  I have a nice chisel rack I just need to put them back in.

      Also saws I have the same problem, a quick cut, then I leave it on the saw bench and bump it with my knee.  Time for another bandaid ...
