Had a small but painful experience today. Made me think about the whole situation and want to bring up having an emergency plan. Turned on the air compressor to put air in the lawn mower tires. A while back I had issues with the plastic guards and took them off. Been meaning to replace them and well today I reached for the air hose and had my fingers extended too far and I was not looking at what was touching, Fingers got whacked a few times by the plastic rotating fan. Felt the contact then heard the bbraaappp and then felt the pain. Immediately knew what I did. I had made a point a while back to "know" what my actions would be in the case of an accident. I work alone and live in a rural area. 1.Stop any and all machinery: I only run one thing at a time. 2. Know what my surroundings are and pick my egress route toward the Trauma kit/phone in the shop 3. Asses the injury: I decided on looking at any injury last as it can bring on shock faster by seeing what damage was done. Ended up with cuts on my fingers and broke a nail... no dislocations or broken bones. Went inside and used the house med kit. Ouch, just plain ouch. Got the lawn mowed and thought about it for while. Have a plan, it will make things go smoother. Keep it as simple as possible.
