how do you START the safety issue ???
In my country there is no easily available book-of-rules, and everyone is on his own about how to make the work safer for himself and the others. Between the British (who, imho, overdo it with safety) and the Greeks (who don't like precaution measures at all) what would your case be?
From my own experience - much more as an orthopaedic surgeon and much less as a woodworker - hazards and accidents start with bad mood, tiredness and loss of concentration on the work in hand. Thinking of the dozens (hundreds??) of carpenters I looked after over the years, it has always been a case of "hurry to give out the piece to get paid", "the **** who told me off - bla bla - " the wife who is never happy", other people calling while the tool is spinning etc.
I would very much appreciate any comments on this - do you work late? do you let others interrrupt you? are you lazy enough to just carry on when you see that you need to stop and lubricate etc?? do you work when upset or depressed??
