Take Notice of What You Do

Next time you’re working in the shop, take note of any unsafe things you do.  What risky shortcuts are you taking?  Take note of these and work on resolving them.

Here are a few common less-than-safe shortcuts:

  1. not keeping the workspace clean and orderly;
  2. not taking time to check a tool is set-up properly; and
  3. not securing a workpiece properly.

What shortcuts have you noticed yourself taking, exposing yourself to unnecessary risk?  Are these dangers being caused by laziness?  Lack of knowledge? Something else?

I would be delighted if you left a comment!
