MartinSr, Like you said-SAFETY,SAFETY,SAFETY!! I have been in the business for a long time(too long but I am retiring at the end of this year ) I have seen many really bad accidents happen to these "tough guys", these range from minor burns to disfiguring burns to fatalities, unfortunately, and each and every time it could (SHOULD) have been prevented. An accident does not have to happen all at once and these guys who are "tough" find out all too late that an accumulation of tiny burn scares amounts to a serious injury but, like a tattoo, they are there permanently. Then there is that leather-like skin, skin cancer, eye damage from those quick helmet-less tacks and sometimes eye loss from a quick splatter while welding or cutting without protection, it goes on and on but once it happens, and it does all too often, it is TOO LATE FOR PROTECTION!
