Always wear protecton

Timco Member Posts: 3,026
Got a call to fix a dryer vent & had to take off my shoes to work in this very high end condo. While sitting indian style behind the dryer my leg fell asleep and I tossed my leg back to stand up and stabbed my foot with the tin snips tip. I bled all over the lino behind the dryer, and had a giant pool by the time I could get it to stop bleeding. Hands, floor, sock was soaking, and such. Shoes would have saved me from this stupid mistake. Not again...foot protection from now on!

Just a guy running some pipes.

    I never take off shoes when entering a home. Who covers workers comp claim when insurance company finds out safety equipment was not used? I carry shoe cover for situations like this.
