Now that Brownwood has opened, the safety crew has split into two factions. Currently there are twice as many safety crew members attending Brownwood than Rolling Acres. And since members are learning new machines and workflows, having more safety crew at Brownwood helps increase safe practices.
SAFETY TIP OF THE MONTH: When ripping thin strips on the table saw, take the time to install the special rip fence designed for cutting thin strips of wood. Coupled with the special push stick designed for cutting thin strips, it’s safer and easier to use the thin strip rip fence. Remember to replace the standard fence when you’re finished.
