Safety week is well under way and here is my second episode. As I mentioned on Monday, I firmly feel that there are three areas we need to be aware of everytime we walk into the shop.
We talked about lung safety on Monday and how there’s more to sawdust danger than explosions and slipping and falling. Today it’s time to talk about hearing protection. This is another one that’s easy to take for granted, afterall sometimes we just need to make a quick cut…but those quick cuts quickly add up!
A couple of good links to visit includeOSHA’s Woodworking eTool, American Speech-Language-Hearing Association and also this comparison chart of various decibels created from a range of different sources at Galen Carol Audio.
