    Default PPE et al

    I thought maybe this thread could cover aspects of stuff we wear for injury protection (see following video---one of the best put together with message, music and meaning) and stuff we wear for convenience (e.g., sometimes I wear gaiters (meant for snow/scree use) to keep sawdust out of my boots).


    This video came thru a feed I get from UGA Center for Urban Agriculture..it's from Vimeo...the embed feature for this video is not active so it is just linked.

    And it the thread doesn't take off at least the video got some exposure.

    As long as it's coolish weather I can wear these...just discovered today the hooks at the bottom of the leg. Wonderful to hold the pants down while putting on the saddle!

    Very timely thread...I am chilling on the couch with a big bandage on my forearm. I finally got myself really good with the silky saw. Follow through while cutting a dead branch, and sliced deep on my left forearm. Stitches and all. I have never bled so much! I will now be buying one of those cut proof sleeves, I've gotten away with silky cut's for years, today was the bad one. A gusher up at 60'.

    Dang, Fiona....bad juju. Silky's are serious for sure. Reckon you did quick pressure and exit the tree?

    Hopefully just got meat, no connective tissue.

    Yeah, thank goodness for the first aid pouch on my belt, and the one in the truck, talking about PPE. Also fortunate to have a country hospital 10 mins up the road. Straight in, stitched up and done in 30 mins...no charge
