Default OSHA would be proud

I started thinking about a few posts recently about getting hurt in the sport of sugaring. I have this visual in my mind of Jake doing all his candy making in just his PJ's. It dawned on me that I do a lot of welding in a T shirt and shorts. I do have a menagerie of scares and cuts that count in the hundreds. I remember back when I was in the ER getting my head stitched up from walking into an open tool box drawer. A guy came in that was walking on a roof with two buckets of tar when he tripped and he plunged both hands down into the buckets wearing welding gloves.

My finisher used to be real high off the ground requiring you to take the draw off bucket of boiling hot syrup and list it up and dump it at a dangerous level. Most pails are fine for cool milk but scalding sticky syrup A few years ago my 8 year old was playing around with a glue gun and decided that making a big puddle and sticking his finger in it was the right thing to do.

I have a transfer pump from draw off pail to finisher, finisher to filter press and filter press to drum or bottler. Now if I could just get my timing right when Im filling bottles and not pour it down my hands.

I'm surprised we don't have more trips to the ER.

Cutting pallets with chainsaws for evaporator wood is an accident waiting to happen . I've seen it done by 2 sugar makers but I still don't like it.
