Going back to our main reason for today’s discussion, some of the major safety precautions you must try to obey during your production process include but not limited to the following:

1. Focus – always avoid distractions and put your mind on the steps to be taken as failure to concentrate might lead to chemical spills or injuries.

2. Wear protective clothing which you must remove at the end of the whole procedure, these include,

  1. Shoes
  2. Eye goggles
  3. Long sleeves
  4. Hand gloves
  5. Nose guards: These are to prevent your skin from any accidental spill of chemical.

3. Keep all the Chemicals in a separate place away from the reach of children. You don’t want to expose your little ones to any form of danger!

4. Keep (If possible) a bottle of vinegar around you during the procedure. If you accidentally spill any chemical on the ground, pour some of the vinegar on the spot as this helps to neutralize the effect of the poisonous chemical.

5. Use common sense – in every circumstance, there are times when you just have to apply the use of common sense in situations where there might be no clearly stated rules of engagement. Always follow the rule of “safety first”. Just make sure you do what would keep you and your loved ones safe.
