One comment about this bigike and then I’ll shut up and listen. While it’s true that safety will always be the most importent tool in the shop, there’s another factor that we all seem to be forgetting especially when it comes to flesh detectors. The more we depend on automatic safety devices to save us, the more imminent danger awareness we lose. What I mean to say is that if we train ourselves over time and the use of these devices to automaticly feel safe when walking into a dangerous invirenment the more insensitive we “and our children” will become to real danger. Don’t get me wrong though, I certainly don’t advicate intentional ingury in order to achieve a cautious mindset, but over the years I’ve noticed that when I walk into and use someone elses shop thats equiped in a different way than mine ,there is a lot more opportunity for injury. I realy feel that we are in a way, “dumbing ourselves down” every time we make our surroundings a little safer.
