“It’s the simple things that’ll always get you.”
That’s what one of my mentors said one time when he was giving me one of his off-the-wall lessons about welding safety. His lessons were usually strange and most of the time I think he just liked hearing himself talk, but what he said really stuck with me.
It’s easy for us to remember the big things like,
- Keep your hands away from the saw when it’s on
- Don’t smoke next the gas tanks
- Don’t weld in room full of TNT
I think you get the point. However, it easy to get comfortable in your abilities and forget about the little safety measures that come into play more often then say, welding in a room full of dynamite.

In this quick video I go over those simple safety tips that you need to know and remember every time your having fun with a project.
Think about the last project you worked on or take a look what your creating now. Are you ignoring the little things and just focusing on the big ones? Make yourself a safety checklist ( a reminder really ) and put it on the wall in a spot where you’ll see it while your working. It won’t take long before their engraved in your brain and they’ll become second nature.
