A little trick
I developed a bad habit, oftentimes when I'd complete an operation, I'd take off the safety glasses and ear muffs and just leave 'em lying somewhere around the shop. Most times I'd remember and put them back on, but there were a significant number of times I forgot them when I started the next operation, which I'd then complete without wearing ear muffs or safety glasses. Change was needed if I was going to continue my woodworking hobby, as I need both my eyes and ears to perform my day job.
So, I've now trained mself to hang them on the machine I'm going to use next, in a position that prevents me from using the machine without moving them. I find it improves my use of those important items of safety equipment markedly. if you are not using them on every machine for every operation, maybe my idea will work for you.
