What of the following PPE do you own, and use regularly? (or not, as the case may be)

    First Aid Kit? Fire extinguishers?

    And an area that contains potential of exploding home brew glass bottles. ( I know why they explode) 1" MDF on 3 sides and 4th side is shed wall. Worth seeing the mess when ONLY one bottle explodes among 10 crates. (a big "distribution" of glass ! ! )

    A few after thoughts regarding PPE. and today's weather in Vic. in shed. Heating!
    Also matting/cushioning standing areas.

    I work in a timber mill so you get to know all to well the rules that apply so I use them at home in the shed as well.( PPE, guards and isolation )
    A good survey would be to ask how many people mow the lawn in thongs or have they ever seen anyone do the same.

    Prescription glasses with safty glasses over top... both of which fog up when using a variety disposable face masks.( I have not tried soaping them.)

    Safety glasses over prescription glasses is satisfactory if safety glasses are big enough .ie. it is a matter of size/fit.

    Leather apron is a great thing. Likewise leather gloves for specific jobs. .eg. mounted/fixed up-turned belt sander !

    I am fairly conscious of having short/rolled-up sleeves when using machinery. (a place for gauntlets? velcro or zipped?)

    Good to see nobody voted for the "nude" options...
