  • Steam powered wooden box factory - "OSHA/EPA Free Area"

    A friend sent me this. Fascinating present-day use of 1800s technology (mostly):

              I could happily work there , not too much electronics to fail , reliable gear .
              Not too much pressure .

              And no nitpicking unwanted people who want to shut you down because in their biased idea "this place is unsafe"
              There is no cotton wool to wrap the workers in .

                We had a thread on this six months ago, here: http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/thr...hlight=Redding. But its title does not make it easy to find in a search.

                  Nice video! The shop has its own "rhythm" to it. I'm not a safety Nazi but how do they get away with a shop like that and not have OSHA all over them?

                      I wondered about that to. The dog seemed like a perfect fit.

                      That video was better than anything on TV tonight.

                          Shops with under 10 employees are not subject to OSHA inspection.
                          And quit being a safety Nazi.

                            Actually they are.

                            They are exempt from record-keeping and they are exempt from certain requirements regarding supplying mandated safety gear and they are exempt from "internal enforcement" policies. Basically if Bob lops a hand off on the saw you don't have to report it, you don't have to give Bob ear-plugs OR safety glasses, and you don't even have to advise Bob that the saw is dangerous. It's more of a trap to catch/bleed-out small businesses that screw up than it is any sort of benifit.

                            Doozer, you're local to me so when I say Dutton Ave over in Grider right across from where the old Niagara Machine Works was... you know where I'm talking about.
                            Four man shop, was shut down by OSHA for flagrantly violating every regulation out there and exposing workers to catastrophic levels of fiber-glass dust. This happened about a month ago.



                            As for this steam-powered shop... Everyone there is a long-time worker, or family. They've got decades of experience working around those machines therefore they are more than likely safer in that shop than any one of us would be... simply because they've worked with the stuff so long.

                              They could claim to have gone digital. The thermometer on the branding machine was digital!
