Today’s blog is a health and safety moment. Or rather, a few moments of extolling the health benefits of model railways.
My colleague at work phoned in sick today, and said he was having to visit the hospital to see a specialist about a nasty gash on his finger. Now I know he is into model aircraft, so asked, “Is this a propeller induced injury?” Sure enough it was…..
So health and safety tip today is don’t put your finger near a model aircraft propeller whilst it is rotating.
Having made myself feel suitably self-righteous, I remembered the self-induced stab wound from a screwdriver I got from do-it-yourself over the weekend. And I am choosing to ignore the power tools, mini-circular saw, electrical work and almost as many dangerous chemicals as stored in Syria and Iraq combined, up there in the loft with the railway.
Or maybe I should just model one of these….
