Episode #129 - Shop First Aid Kit



Click HERE to download a PDF file with Contents List • Medical History Form • SHOP-FAK Label

The most important tool in your shop is your brain exercising common sense (this works politically as well!). Know the limits and safe operation of your tools. Always use eye - ear - lung protection with proper fitting hearing protection, safety glasses and dust mask. Additionally, have a first-aid kit, fire extinguisher and phone close at hand.

Be safe and have fun!
