My first blog after launching this site is a Safety Moment. Any project manager worth his salt will always consider safety first. Tools required to execute Garnero Project Plans can be dangerous if you are not trained and experienced using them. The use of Personnel Protective Equipment (or PPE) to protect body parts like eyes, ears and hands is a given, but understanding all the risks of using a particular tool is just as, if not more, important to your safety. Power tools like table saws, routers, grinders and drill presses all have very sharp high speed cutting heads that require respect. Read, understand and follow the guidance provided in your equipment owner manuals. It is your best defense against injury!
