10 Safety Precautions You’re Probably Ignoring
“Safety first” as old adage says, but how far do you observe safety precautions while doing you visual merchandising daily routine?
Your boss won’t surely be happy to know that you have left your job unfinished more than worrying about you being injured while doing your tasks, and for sure, you won’t be happy of your situation – experiencing pain – as much as possible. Do you?
Please spare few minute of your time to review these safety precautions which you are probably ignoring.
- Wear protective stuff. Use construction helmet when you are working with solid and heavy tools and materials – especially when you are working in a construction area. Don’t forget also to use eye glasses, glove and other body protection.
- Place the blades, nails, pins and other sharp and pointed objects in a safety box. Segregate them. Do not mix.
- When using a utility knife, make sure to cut a material in a way that the direction of the blades is away from you, not towards you.
- Don’t be over confident that hot melt glue won’t hurt you. It’s hot and it can injure you. Don’t be stupid to test the temperature of the glue gun with your bare hand.
- Use harness when working at higher area like on the facade of the store or in the atrium, unless you have extraordinary reflexes like Spiderman.
- Unplug the line before connecting any electric wire. You can ignore this reminder if you can tolerate electric shock.
- Know where to access fire extinguisher and other emergency kit.
- Spray paint, adhesive spray and other compressed liquid materials (with aerosol) are flammable. These stuffs might also blast. Read the handling instruction on the package.
- Avoid super glue contacting your skin. Once your skin is stuck with super glue onto any object, use volatile liquid like acetone or other adhesive remover to unglue it.
- Child-like attitude is good, but do not apply it with very serious situations and hazardous matters. Do not play with stuff that may cause serious damage.
