10. Why Not? Home is where we feel safe, comfortable, at ease No policies Equipment didn’t come with the house ‘Get it done’ mentality BUT…..

11. Ever thought of..???

12. Thimbles?

13. Oven Mitts?

14. Baseball Gloves?

15. Hats?

16. So we’ve used it for years, why not more? Sad part is, most came from an ouie, so lets think for a second.

17. Most valuable and easiest to protect even at home: EYES HANDS EARS (Hearing)

18. Did you know?? 40% of at home eye injuries occur during activities like cooking, yard work or home repairs. 78% of these injuries, no protective eyewear Regular eyeglasses do not protect your eyes

19. Tasks needing eyewear Gardening Mixing or spraying chemicals Mowing the lawn Working overhead Remodeling projects Insulation, drywall, Working in crawlspace Using power tools

20. Special Case: Power tools http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0DYgLlWzYqk&feature=player_detailpage Look for Z87 ANSI stamp for high impact hazards

21. Attractive Eyewear

22. Hello!! What??

23. Do we think about our hearing? Power tools Hunting Lawn mower Car/Truck engines Teenagers!! Kids in general ? (sorry, that’s “selective” hearing) Mother-In-Laws (same applies, “selective”)…

24. Types of hearing protection

25. What do we do with our hands that could need protection? A LOT!

26. Instances needing Gloves Gardening Cooking Moving furniture Holding tools Health conditions Cold weather Working with metals Certain home crafts Using sharp tools

27. Mechanic Gloves

29. Every task that you do is worth looking at for safety purposes. Can it be done more safely? Is the only thing that is keeping your from that next step the fact that you haven’t bought what you need? Then you should prioritize getting those items, use them, and take steps to keep yourself safe. Have fun with it! Don’t know what to buy for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, stocking stuffers? How about a caring gift of PPE for home?
