Happy New Year too all. I have not posted much lately,i still check the site on a regular basis. This past year I have been busy with restoring an old barn too be my new shop and trying too do enough jobs too pay the bills.
The new shop is taking longer than I would like but I am able too work out of it. Just its not finished. And this brings up the reason for my blog. I am doing some things I hope too make my shop safer too work in.
So I decided too share some of those things and hope that you all will share some of yours so we can all have a much safer year doing what we love.
1) I have 3 fire Extinguishers mounted on the walls, (make sure of the ratings I use ABC they cover most needs)
2) A metal can with a lid , for soiled rags they can ignite and start a fire
3) smoke dector
4) first aid kit
5)eye wash station, with stains and other chemicals we use this should be a must in every shop
6) safety glasses
9) guards on equiptment
10) air filtration and dust collection
These are some of the tings I am doing to try and keep my shop safe. I am also trying too keep my shop cleaner as well as that alone can make things much safer.
With I wish you all a safe and happy new year
