    Thought I would add one:

    Balance the weight of your tool belt.

    Tool belts sure are small and handy but they have the ability to pull your body out of alignment. That is unless you keep its weight balanced. If you find that one side of your belt is heavier than the other, then make the necessary adjustments by transferring tools to the lighter side.

    I like to go to the chiropractor to get put adjusted and put back in alignment!

    Me too, I usually go about once every other month. I used to only go when my back went out but I found that regular visits helps to keep my back from going out.

    That’s what happened to me. I was kneeling down and just stood up and I was in pain. Didn’t know that could happen. Went to the chiropractor and he fixed me right up. Lower back pain is terrible I could harldy move.

    Back pain sucks – I have 2 fused disks in my lower back and some Sciatica issues. Before I started seeing the chiropractor on a regular basis I would average a couple days a month down with back pain. Now my back only goes out once every few months and it is easier to get back into place.

    My doctors say I am beyond repair . It is hard to fix nerve damage .

    A buddy of mine has fibromyalgia- that is a dam tough disease. You got to be a tough SOB to do all the work you do in your bird houses and your house….I know about the only thing my buddy does is get high.

    I don’t know if I would suggest this to anyone but my GF only weights about 110 pounds and I get her to walk on my back. Never on the spine but everywhere else. It always straightens out my back and makes me feel like new.

    I used to have my little sister do that years ago. She’s 16 now and probably heavier than I would want to tolerate.

    My wife keeps talking about taking a white t shirt and drawing roads all over it so our daughter can drive cars on my back. Not the same, but it will do until she’s big enough to walk on my back.

    Awesome collection of safety gear there Dirty! Very impressive!

    I know someone else was asking about checking your harness over and I found a great link that is about 3 min long. If you have never used a harness before, take a look at the video so you have an idea when it comes around to putting one on 🙂

    For what it’s worth, didn’t think you were making fun of safety, thought you were venting about the continuance of rules and regs that continue to come out of bureaucratic offices

    Here is my tip of the day
    Never ever lean a A-frame ladder ageist anything to use it! It must always be opened like it’s intended use, as a A-Frame. Also never stand on the top of the ladder or the top step as is indicated on the ladder. Most jobsite accidents happen from a ladder.

    According to the place I work, you must also hang all ladders on edge horizontally on the wall or they will warp. I can see this with a wooden ladder but I can’t imagine fiberglass or metal warping…(we have no wooden ladders)

    Dirty, that video reminds me of the dozens of safety video’s we had to watch during the OSHA certification.

    They opened up the class by telling us a story of how a guy had his balls explode because he fell from a lift and didn’t have his safety harness tightened properly. If that doesn’t give you chills I don’t know what would.

    The guy then promptly died of shock from the pain…

    Thought I would add one:

    Balance the weight of your tool belt.

    Tool belts sure are small and handy but they have the ability to pull your body out of alignment. That is unless you keep its weight balanced. If you find that one side of your belt is heavier than the other, then make the necessary adjustments by transferring tools to the lighter side.

    http://www.safetyservicescompany.com/industry-category/construction/5-safety-tips-for-construction-workers-on-avoiding-stress-and-injury/

    I bought a new belt last year for just that reason.

    I read these guard open accident posts and I gotta say, Never rely on any safety appliance to save you from injury. They aren’t perfect either and can fail, In the cases of it kicking back and cutting your arm or the cord the guard may or may not have been quick enough to protect ya anyway.

    Could/would ya blame it on the guard for not saving ya? Could/would ya sue the manufacturer for it? Just something to think about while I go get me a cup of that Mcdanalds coffee

    Depends who you ask(Sawstop…)

    I own one lanyard and one harness. For when I am working in lifts.

    I’ve never liked the idea of strapping myself to a lift. I’d rather fall or jump straight down if a lift goes over rather than get flung into the ground. Of course I very rarely use a lift.

    Sorry to hear that Cranbrook2. You never know with future medicine what can be repaired though.
