I use this "Bionic" face shield with the #4 shade for gas welding. It's a MUST with bifocal glasses.

I can't believe the amount of times I look over to see guys in my shop doing something about as stupid. We have a cabinet full of safety equipment, our employer will provide ANYTHING we need, I mean ANYTHING, no questions asked. And here they are welding without a respirator or using an air chisel without ear protection, blows me away. And YES there was a guy there who would MIG weld without a helmet turning his head away at every weld.

So they dont learn huh?
Flash of the eyes from no lense
Ray burn from unprotected skin (had some turn grey from being cooked - once is all)
Black **** out the nose
Cant hear the chicks at the disco
Shakes from welding galv/zinc iron

I laugh when I open another car mag teaching you 'how to tig aluminum' and the bozos wearing a white t-shirt, yeah suffer know-it-all when you die from skin cancer. Hope your t-shirt catches fire when you grind your cruddy weld.

I have talked until I am blue in the face, not nagging mind you, just a reminder here and there. Or I have also went and gotten a welding respirator and gave it to the guy. But check this out, the disposable welding respirators are $20 and they look a lot like the $3 dust ones so I have seen the guys toss them in the garbage after one use or use them for sanding or something. So one guy in particular I explained this to him and weeks later he made the comment how he didn't want to use them because I told him they were expensive. Geeez

But I have given the welding respirator to a guy to have him use it for five minutes then rip it off all mad because it was "uncomfortable" and toss it in the garbage.

Now mind you, every car we are working on is zinc coated, every single piece of metal on it is galvanized!

I hate respirators, or really good filters that restrict my breathing. But I'd still never weld galvanized without a respirator or mask specifically designed to filter the poisonous gas that comes off that coating when you weld.
Likewise for any welding time that goes on for long. If I was welding for a living, and hoping to enjoy retirement, I'd wear whatever it took to help me get there!

I always say to the youngsters "Believe me, you WANT to see your grandkids".

Spent the week with them in Idaho and saw the grand son take his first real steps! What a treasure! And because I have taken care of myself I could PLAY with them. Glad there was no recording of Grandpa and his ribbon dance! LOLOL Also on the playground equipment at the park, Grandpa did some Olympic quality stuff!

second in importance to on job safety is exercising. a body in motion stays in motion. When you exercise you are not making your muscles sore, you are conditioning them to not be sore. If you have sore joints you keep them active. If I dribble my basketball everyday my left hand feels fluid and alive. If I don't dribble the ball the hand gets numb or will cramp up on me if I spray.
