Yawn i know but i am ticking this off my list of things.

I am going to

1. Actually read all the MSDS sheets i have and carry them all times in case little timmy drinks some of my solvall so we know what to tell the ambulance man.

2. Carry a pint eye wash with me, have you seen what some of these things can do to your eyes or little timmys. Squirts his baby brother with my traffic lane sprayer.

3. Wear my gloves so in a few years time i dont develop dermatitus. Nitrile rubber a good all rounder buy them too ig so its not a hassle to get them on and off. Or at least have a realy big cut down one when you are spotting with nasty chems.

4. Have a set of good quality dustmasks. Mainly in case i am in a waynetta's. But also because long term exposure to allergens will increase my chances of breathing problems later in life.

5. Check the condition of all my mains leads on a basic maintainence schedule for my equipment.

6.  Check all the fuses in my second hand kit are the correct value. and make sure I carry some fuses so i am not tempted to do anything naughty if one goes on me.

7. find suitable RCD equipment if possible.

And on separate issue back up my PC the last time i did it was some time ago , if i lost a lot my data it would set me back.

What have i forgotten my dears, quite a lot i am sure. Smiley


Oh and be good to your knees and they will be good to you.

Hi David

Just having some fun...but I'll bet some of the new people to the industry didn't know so I though a light hearted clarification was in order..

Thanks for your reply
