It’s the beginning of safety week and here at Matt’s Basement Workshop I’m planning on sharing with you my take on three very important safety issues, starting today with sawdust safety.
When most of us think of sawdust safety we think of fires and explosions due to sparks and accumulated piles. But I think of health issues first and foremost. If not properly contained, sawdust poses a major health issue not just on the woodworker, but their families too.
A couple of good links to visit includeOSHA’s Woodworking eTool, Gregory Machinery and also some of my previous episodes that deal with dust collection include, Episode #9 “Dust Collection”, Tips From the Scrap Pile No.30 .
