Good advice, I'm pretty bad at following it though. :( I should have had eye protection on today when I was running a chainsaw but it was raining and I just went ahead without it although it's stupid.

Good advice! I've always been bad about wearing hearing protection and don't wear a respirator near as often as I should. This is a good reminder, like you said "It adds up". Thanks!

lol,, I need a air ride or hyd. creeper.. one that can be a foot or so off the ground and then lowered to the weeds to get under a car..
for many reasons, but mostly, gettting up from that low without rolling out of it first is a p.i.t.a. and 2nd, reaching stuff on a 4x4 while on one ,doesn't always work..

Great video Brian. I am somewhat of a safety Nazi and could not agree with you more. Go home in the same condition you arrived at work, take all precautions that are available to you to achieve that goal.

Being I am old and senile it took me a few minutes to figure out your post was more than a photo. For us less web savvy guys, maybe post click image for video or something similar, thx.

I have used a head light - looks dorky, but works well - also good for working under the dash!

Same for me, I sat and looked at the photo trying to figure out what the TIPS where that I wasn't seeing. Scrolled down and saw someone mentioned it was a good video....Ah ha, now I got it!

Brian, shouldn't you have had your hearing protection on when you dumped all those coins on the creeper....they were pretty loud:mwink:

That's why you shouldn't have a mirror in the shop, then you won't know how dorky you look, or care!!

I wear them while using most any air tool, even ratchets. While doing hammer and dolly work on a large project, and certainly with any grinder or sander. I use one with a radio in it while mowing the lawn. :D

I never pick up a penny unless I have a back support belt, osha approved gloves and underwear and knee pads. so if you drop a penny let me go suit up and I'll go get it....eventually :D
