It sure can, just little things too... He didn't want to tuck his shirt in because it didn't "look cool". He tried to sue the company but it didn't fly, he was trained, he signed that he was trained, he signed the safety policy agreement, and I wrote him up twice for it. One more time would have been three strikes and he would have been gone anyways. But I should have done it the second time because he was tucking it in when I was around and pulling it back out when I was not. But I tried to be cool with him and sometimes it doesn't pay.

My first day on the job as a repairman I looked around the lunch table and noticed I was the only one wearing a wedding ring. Three of the men there were missing their ring finger. I didn't ask. I just slipped the ring off and put it into my pocket. asked my wife if she wanted me to risk the finger or not. Ring is still on my key ring.

I wear them for several different reasons . Obviously there are a lot of other full time guys turning wrenches like myself . I wear gloves because I donít want to have to wash my hands before AND after I use the restroom or if I have to take a phone call or right down parts that need to be ordered on my current work order . I also wear them because when you have to wash your hands 25 times a day your skin gets very red and dry and it sucks this time of year when it gets all dry cracked . Last but not least any time Iím working on tractor trailers I wear them religiously 5th where grease can take a week to get out of calloused hands it is nasty stuff . Mechanix gloves last me less than a day before theyíre destroyed, only time I use them is when I wonít have access to a box full of quality nitriles .

one of my many experiences on a drill rig involves seeing a wedding band smashed into a guys finger. when the ring finally got cut off the bottom 3/4 of the finger went with it.

regardless of my job i’ve tucked my shirt in. the REQUIRED SAFETY APPARATUS frequently included a reflective vest. ive seen countless vests ripped off of people by rotating tooling. i bought high vis yellow/green shirts and tucked them in, per usual. no issues. i still made out with several broken bones and more stitches than i can count. i do have all of my fingers, though.

But in the process i didnt see that the inside of the tire had wires showing so the one frickin time i didnt wear the shop gloves i tore my hand to shreds on them and had to go home early because of it as it wouldnt stop bleeding and couldnt get blood on customers cars so here i am medicating the hell out of my hand so awesome >.>

I did something similar. No gloves on, wrapped my hands around a tire to pull a wheel off and it was not the tire cords that got me.... sum bish hit a porcupine at some point and had quills sticking through the inside side wall. Didn't puncture enough to cause air leaks but was enough to weave into the sidewall. Talk about HURT?!?!?! I'll take cords over quills any day lol

The one time you arent wearing gloves is the time it always seems to happen. Funny how it works isnt it?

Potential hazards and safety gear should be the first thing everyone thinks about before they start a task both on the job or in your own garage, Most accidents and injuries are preventable. Safety glasses are another good example. I am aware of a case where an individual was using a high speed die grinder with a cutoff blade and no guard. He was cutting on a front clip to make modifications, Wearing prescription glasses but no safety glasses or goggles. The cutoff blade broke, shattering his glasses, He will live the rest of his life with only one eye. It is a good idea to spend a couple of dollars on good safety equipment, use tools correctly, think about what hazards exist and what could go wrong before you start a task. Sorry, don't mean to get off topic or lecture but I sincerely hope that everyone ends the day without even a close call, or blowing up their garage.

Handle all of them on the wheel or sidewall, it's a good habit to get into. Man, I can't count how many times I did that before I changed habits. Can you imagine that people drive around with tires like that?

Im trying to change lol it was basically a screw it and see if this works before bringing the bfh out and whack the inside of the wheel to get it off as this was a honda civic that had cut springs so basically where i needed to hit was tons of suspension parts i couldnt hit so i tried the safest ways first. Plus shop manager doesnt want us grabbing the wheels as we can damage and scratch them and with these being chrome basically it came to mind. I tried whacking the outside with my foot till it didnt work then the rubber side of the gun on it, That didnt work so tried grabbing it and giving it a good tug (bump testing the car is your best friend) and yep this bull**** so even the shop manager had a struggle getting it off as it took 40 mins to break it free while i was watching from the side lol. So he was like still bleeding go home then oh well an hour loss from work thats it. But yes i took it off because the screens we use are touch screen and the gloves refuse to work with them so i had to take them off and put some comments in and forgot to put them back on.

I am assuming they make you wear a uniform, probably one with a pocket on the front of it. If so get a pen with a tip like this and keep it there. It works on all touch screens. Never have to take your gloves off.
