Safety Hints

Safety Hints.

Don'st work with untied laces on boots or shoes, or wear bad fitting footwear. Substantial well fitting boots and shoes lessen the liability to stumble, and of the accidents which result from this cause. Watch your step always.

* * *

Be yourself a firm believer in, and an exemplar of, the safety principles you commend to others.

* * *

Don'st permit an inexperienced workman to probe your eye with any sharp instrument when foreign matter has entered it. Go immediately to the first-aid man, who must use a special brush for this purpose. In all cases of serious eye injuries, a medical man should be consulted as soon as possible.

* * *

Don'st put paper or cotton waste over cuts or burns. A septic wound is apt to follow such a practice. Have all injuries of the kind properly attended to at the first-aid cupboard.

* * *

Don'st indulge in practical jokes, which violate the rules of safety-first, in any circumstances whatever.
