I think the best way to keep safe is to learn safe working habits early. I also think the biggest obstacle to learning safe habits is ridicule. I have never been at a workplace or jobsite where I have not gotten some flack for putting on my glasses before making every cut. I have two responses.
"Oh, I'm not wearing them to impress you." is the first.
If it continues, I look them in the eye and say,
"Look, I care more about my eyesight then your opinion."
If you are ever in a position where someone is trying to make you look bad for being safe, please use my lines, they've always worked for me. Do you have any snappy retorts for the workplace fool? If so let me hear it in the comments box below!
