"OSHA-compliant safety spindles, with the last 1/2 inch or so bent at a 90° angle to reduce the likelihood of injury, have been available for some time." I call bull on this - I could not find anything on OSHA's web site about this, or anything on Google. The closest thing I found was a Fellowes Wire Spindle, Black, on Staples.com, which featured a safety cap. The main reason I think this is suspious is that a paper spindle with a 90° bend would be near impossible to use. Unless someone has actually seen one of these "safety spindles", I think it would be safer to just to say that safety can be an issue, and you can use a plastic cap when the spindle isn't being used.
