Automotive Shop Safety

Automotive Shop Safety


all right mr. Bradley I talked to you guys about safety today hi I’m mr. Brent Leigh I’m talk to you guys about safety today it’s very important than the shop environment because if you don’t follow protocol something bad so looking over a few key things you need to know before we’re going into the lab first off everyday people wear but it’s called personal protection equipment Hey we were shoes every day in the lab we need specific types of shoes if you look at the bottom of these shoes okay they have a slip resistant type material in here in a pattern it will help you prevent from slipping now slipping is a major cause of injury in the workplace and that can be caused by a floor loose items on the floor but it causes a lot of damage Oh another thing you can wear is also your apparel notice that I’m wearing a a non loose-fitting attire which is I going to get caught on any kind of machinery because we won’t that happen because there could be a machine that we don’t want to come in contact with and if we have loose clothing then it could potentially cause us some kind of harm because it’s going to get caught up in the machinery and we don’t want to happen and also it’s a flame-retardant type now we’re not going to be around flames all the time but just in case this is I actually you know flame retardant so that way if for any reason that flames or sparks earning then get on the on the shirt it will not burn you know it won’t catch fire I should say it might burn a hole through the middle of it but we’ll get more elaborate things to cover for that now other things you’re going to come in contact with safety glasses now I’ll put a link at the bottom of the video which shows different kinds of safety glasses but there are different types of safety glasses now these these are the highest standards which means that you can pretty much essentially don’t try this at home but you could potentially you know shoot a nail through here and it should theoretically stop it up to a certain velocity I’ve seen videos on the internet work guys have shot these things with you know a smaller velocity nail guns to show the difference between you know prescription glasses versus highest standard safety glasses as well so we want to make sure we cover our eyes because a lot of the workplace injuries as a result of just getting something in your eye whether it be dust and debris or whether it be a flying object we just want to make sure we have all our bases covered because my injuries are very hard to recover from especially if it’s pretty decent so we want to make sure that we have good enough eye protection from that and we also have hearing detection now we are in an environment that has lots of noises occasionally and we want to make sure the decimal does not get too high now decibels are just a unit of second so these will actually reduce the amount of decibels that will get through to your eardrums because hearing damage is a serious issue over time if you come in contact with noises alone it will cause you to maybe go deaf or lose some hearing right and that’s an unfortunate thing and because you know an unknown number of different chronic issues now going back to I safety you know we might need a full face shield now this thing covers your whole entire face now if we know we’re gonna be around something it’s going to be causing you know an abrasive wheel we call that a bench grinder and that’s designed to you know shave down pieces of metal to resurface it sorry clean it it’s gonna be having a shower of sparks everywhere and you know what those go into your your face because even though it’s protecting your eyes little bits of metal are getting all over your face if you were to take your hand and kind of touch it and it could get into your eye and then that would also cause an eye injury so we’re gonna wear a full-face and mask for that also we have leather glow so for on that bench grinder and we don’t want to have any abrasions that’s what we cooperations is but what we’re getting them rubs on our hand at a high rate of speed so if you were to take your hand and touch you know the ground is you’re going around it would cause you know late road rash type of abrasion so these leather gloves are going to protect against heat we’re going to protect you in this abrasion and they’re also gonna protect you against a slicing because if I come in contact with something that’s sharp and so maybe we’re picking something up we can just grab some some leather-bound gloves like I have here to put on our shelves to make sure we’re protected from any kind of sharp objects now they do make alternative versions like a night cap alarm other fancy stuff but leather is just probably the most affordable and you know does a really good job when they’ve been using it for a long time and it’s pretty sure I’m true and it has good heat absorption which I’ll get into in a second when we talk about welding she gets to go over right now this is a welding mask okay this is designed to protect your eyes from bright light now when you start welding you’re going to come into contact with UV light which is very bright and if you look at it it will cause you know blindness if you continuously do it so OSHA has determined that if you are doing welding you need a shaped and lens which will go into details in the comments below about different shading you need for the different types of loading you need for the the art gas welding that we’ll be doing in here you’ll need the the shaitaan’ and these are very nice and that the fact that they they automatically go between regular light and the the extra light you have from welding so that way you don’t have to keep putting your helmet up and down constantly because a lot of welders if you have the cheap ones you’re constantly putting your helmet down because your hands are full yeah you know you’re working with the material and you have in your hand you don’t want to have to keep putting it down to the you know do a little neck motion to kind of flop it down really not good to do over a long period of time can cause you know some kind of neck fatigue and you know maybe some some muscles and and spinal injuries you don’t want that happen so you want to make sure you you probably replaced the the battery in here periodically I would say at least once a year maybe if knob it might have a low battery indicator on here we just want to make sure that’s up to pay before you start welding because we definitely want to adjust automatically and not catch it by surprise that was this said before when you’re welding it generates a lot of heat and that requires you a little bit more as far as what you need to protect together against the heat because if you’re your welder you’re basically melting the metal and it’s kind of hot what we want to do is get on a full leather jacket now this thing is made a pretty solid leather and what it will do is protect it it gets any kind of heat now if you do any prolonged welding you will feel like he went on into an oven because it is so hot and you want to make sure that’s your cover from that because if you don’t have that it could cause you know something to catch fire like when your clothes or just you know heat damage to your skin you know what that happened also you’ll have maybe some kind of ventilation system now you can wear a respirator in our shop we have a a few mint which will actually take the air out of there and filter it up outside so it goes away from there so we are covered from that now and below we’ll have some on descriptions and the and the links below for any questions that you might have regarding any of the general safety equipment that we have to that wish you guys a fantastic year if you have any questions please leave a comment and also subscribe and have a nice day thank you
