Default Osha

Wonder how many of us would be allowed to sew and do many of the activities of homemaking if OSHA got into the act?

I've been reading about the rotary cutter injuries, sewing through our fingers, stepping on pins, etc.

Then it comes to the kitchen - we handle hot pans, greasy things, and so forth. Knives. Breaking glass.

Laundry area - if anyone still has a wringer washing machine - those wringers can be hazardous!

Our homes are dangerous places!

(Can't think of anywhere else I'd rather be, though!)

This is written - mostly - with tongue in cheek!

Good Lord they'd close me down and fine the daylights out of me.I'm forever catching hell for the same 2 hazardous household habits in the kitchen----- my sewing room is actually the safest place for me.

I would not want OSHA in my home, but I would not want to go to work without OSHA in my workplace.
