Work Shop Safety.
Within any home work shop, there are many hazards that can easily cause an accident or even worse. So you should always just take a few minutes to assess your work shop or wood shop for any issues that may lead to an unwanted incident.
Safety issues within the wood come in many forms:
- Tripping Hazards
- Unprotected Blades On Machinery or Tools
- Excessive Noise
- and the list could go on...
So spend a few minutes assessing your work shop & work area before starting any operation.
Try and avoid any unnecessary distractions while using any of your tools or woodworking machinery within your workshop.
If you need to stop working on a machine or tool, switch it off and give it blade or bit a time to fully stop before trying to adjust it or remove a piece of timber. It only takes a few seconds and is worth the wait!
As the old saying goes, "Your health is your wealth".
