About OSHA, bearing in mind the various suggestions and warnings we
have shared here about health hazards that are now answering a lot of
questions about the various ailments some of us have come up with.
I believe most of us understand there is some fire behind that smoke.
There are others who dig heels in and say, “I have always done it this
way and I am fine.” There have been a few right here online who have
labeled some “worry warts.”
We get into a “government vs. us” attitude, and too much resistance to
any change at all. I am personally familiar with workshops and schools
that need to pay attention and attempt to comply, but have many
excuses to not do so.
Carol, how difficult would it be to make a club project to bring the
equipment to an accepted level? I am very frustrated after asking that
some areas be vented, hooded, or old leaking torches and fittings be
dealt with. The first thing I hear is cost, the next “who has the time
to do it?” This is in class and in several different shops. Some of
these locations could be shut down, but hope not to be noticed. I
certainly do not want to see that happen, I use these myself. Just
want health to be as important as everything else. Teresa
