    Since he wasn’t the driver, he didn’t have the keys.

    I've tied off to my truck several times. If the keys are on the roof with you the truck usually doesn't move. Some houses you walk around and there is nothing to tie off to. I guess most safety people have never had to actually work so they think being tied to a truck isn't safe.

    🤪🤪 No but it was the truck they used to take him back to the office to get his car and to think things over for a week.

    Was the truck sitting at an intersection, waiting for the light to turn green?

    I am required by the Chief of Staff to carry my cell phone EVERYWHERE! I am frequently audited and severely punished if I do not have it. This started when I was outside, twisted funny and dislocated my hip. Three months earlier, I had hip surgery. It was absolutely the worst pain and was truly a 10 on the pain scale causing me to black out several times. Thank goodness for the paramedics and morphine.

    I guess when dinner time came around my wife would come looking for me. BTW I cook 90% of our dinners.

    I am seldom in the shop without my cell phone either on me or on the bench. I also have a cordless phone, landline, on the wall.

    started a topic Safety hint

    Safety hint

    Bruce went to his woodworkers meeting last and they had a safety presentation. Usual stuff but… I always take my phone with me when working and have it nearby. Question asked, if you couldn’t get to your phone and were injured, how would you get help? Turn on location and Siri. “Siri call 911.” Bruce said they all said never thought of that. Did you? Do you do that? What is your safety hint? I was “fortunate” when I had my table saw accident 10 years ago as my son was home. And when I had my Carr accident 2 months later as a DNR officer was there to help me until paramedics and fire dept came and to call my husband. Shock sets in very quickly.
