We all love to show off our projects, and our workshops, and we even show off our mishaps. How about we take time to show off our Shop Safety Gear?

Snap pics of your fire extinguishers, your first aid kits, your Safety glass storage, or your hearing protection, respirators?

Let’s get creative and build a Safety Center.

Maybe we could make it a contest. This way EVERYONE wins by bringing more attention to our Safety Gear.

I think I’ll start my Safety Center first thing in the morning.

Sounds like a great idea! We’re always bragging about projects and tools. Safety related items are essential, yet rarely mentioned. Since I haven’t quite figured out how to post photos on a Blog, I’ll have to insert a link to my project that does mention safety gear. Please check out and follow the link to my Instructables, then go to “Step #1” for a photo of some of the gear I use.

I don’t have any pics of my IN-shop safety kit, but here is my chainsaw kit

Leather gloves plus Helmet with integral face shield & Ear Muffs

Chainsaw pants and steel-toed boots

I also wear wrap-around safety glasses under the face shield
