This program will focus on the many ways to stay safe when carving with hand or power tools.
Mostly we think of bleeding, but other dangers lurk as we seek to protect:
- SIGHT (glasses, magnifiers)
- LUNGS (dust, fumes)
- EARS (noise, deafness)
- SKIN (cuts, abrasions)
- JOINTS and BONES (arthritis, crushing)
We have a relatively safe hobby or profession, but there are lots of examples of little and big ways to get hurt. Besides the day-to-day little normal things that can happen, we want to be mindful of protecting our health for decades and not have our body parts wear out prematurely.
This will partly be a discussion of using power carving tools to reduce wear and tear. In a few months we'll focus on work holding issues, which are partly a safety issue as well.
