PAY ATTENTION. Think things through. Don’t let kids, pets, or adults run around you while you’re using dangerous equipment.
Before you start a project, ASSESS YOUR RISKS. Identify possible risk factors and figure out how to mitigate the risks.
If you can’t properly pay attention and think things through, wait for a better time to complete your project. I have had to put a project down because I wasn’t in the right mindset and I didn’t want to hurt myself. Usually I take that opportunity to do a safer project instead. Happy crafting!
