As we kick off Woodworking Safety Week 2008, I thought I’d offer some improvement on marketing it to the woodworking community. It seemed like something was missing: a tagline. I mean, just saying “Woodworking Safety Week 2008” sounds kind of boring, don’t you think? So I’m proposing the following taglines for your consideration. Please click on this link and choose the one that sounds most appropriate (or offer your own in the comments below).

P.S. This is just for fun. Marc Spagnuolo is in no way obligated to apply the tagline to this or any other Woodworking Safety Week.

You never know how quickly it can happen, until it does. Then it’s to late. Stay safe.

Don’t give the (a) finger to safety!

My old man was fond of “If you cut off your leg with that saw don’t come running to me for help.”

Save the cut offs for the scrap bin.

Don’t come up short on safety. (with amputation illustration)

Lend your head, not your hand, to safety.

Thumbs up, (not off) to a safe shop.

Cut wood not profits. Think shop safe.

Think riches not stitches.

Rip a stinkie, not a pinkie!

Choppers belong on the street, not in the shop.

Leave your “buzz” at the door.

Thumb your nose not the saw.

Five will get you ten, they won’t grow back again. take a break if you’re tired. (doesn’t rhyme but . . .)

ten will get you five, take a break if you need, or be left with two.

People call you Lefty, make it a choice .. .

For our Latino bretheren:

Take it from the Gabacho, don’t be Macho. Don”t be a retard, replace the blade guard.

I have been on (sadly) more than one job that resulted in amputation. I have twice seen firsthand, a digit severed. I have seen the Care Flight heli, watched the family deal with the issue of organ donation, and attended the funerals. I’m way too young to have seen the gore that I have. In ALL instances it was “Pilot Error”. You can lead a grunt to water but you can’t make him think.

Have your say...
