Safety Rules to Observe During Home Woodwork

by Tom Stachler 08/11/2019

Home woodwork is not for everyone as it requires a minimum amount of safety. Furthermore, you could get really hurt when working with wood because of the power tools involved. It is for this reason that not everyone should work with wood at home. Here are some specific safety measures that are advisable for home woodwork:

Protect your body

When working with wood, you have to take into account the number of particles that fly off, some in flames (sparks), and the enormous speed at which the automatic sanding blades move. The saw, meanwhile, can be dangerous without proper use, like the hammer and nails.

Eye protection

Consider something unthinkable to cut wood without protective glasses, and the consequence is sawdust spilling to your eyes. This can leave you blind in a matter of seconds. With transparent glasses, unless you have to use a metal torch, you are protected from sawdust and small particles that may be very disastrous.

Ear protection

Another sense to keep in mind is one of the ears, something that already you will have noticed if they have done works at home or near. The continuous screech emitted by the radial saws can end your eardrums and your sanity, so you should put on some soundproofing helmets, or some plugs, that prevent the loud noise from affecting your ears.

Protection of fingers and skin

Unfortunately, the most common accidents in the work of wood, are produced with electrical appliances such as radial saws or electric sanders. Although there is no specific material to avoid accidents altogether, wearing gloves and appropriate clothing will probably mitigate any disaster you may have on your hands or the rest of your body.

Breathing during woodwork

As we have already noticed before, when cutting wood, millions of particles fly out into the air, which can enter almost any hole in the body. Sawdust easily gets stuck in the airways and does not allow breathing, so you should always cover your mouth and nose with some mask. Above all, if you work in closed areas, where there is not much air, try to maintain proper ventilation and low temperature, because working with wood can be very hot.

Organization

As in any job, you must keep your space well organized to have everything at hand. However, it is an essential element in home woodworking because it works with dangerous instruments, and a mistake can have terrible consequences. So keep the place where you're going to work the wood clean and organized.
