Occupational Health & Safety 'Ibles Answered
After running a short thread about NOT sanding glass without serious respiratory protection, the idea of having Occupational Health and Safety Instructables was brought up. (Thanks, psycholily!)
There are a lot of great howtos around here, and many of them touch on potentially harmful techniques. Not that this is a bad thing, and most authors will remark on safety issues, but I feel that many do not discuss how to keep safe.
If we could have a few professionals post simple ibles about how to keep safe while performing various tasks that appear regularly on the site, that would be GREAT.
Things such as:
Respiratory protection - what do you need for sanding, painting, glasswork, welding, etc.
Eye protection - wood work, soldering, welding, etc.
Physical covering - is a long-sleeved shirt and jeans sufficient? Do you need gloves?
Proper Cleanup and Disposal of various materials - what's safe, what's legal?
