    Very lucky/ clumsy

    Hi all,
    A word to the wise,
    I am a manual worker in my daily job, I am a carpenter at a school. Whilst in a rush to do something today I should have used a vice to hold it, instead I held it in my left hand and when I applied toooo much pressure to the 01phillips screwdriver in my right hand it slipped.... Yes you have guessed correctly I screwed my left hand.....
    I am okay...
    Ordinarily I wouldn't mention this BUT!!
    I did my first aid protocol, padding, pressure and elevate!!, but was surprised by the lack of blood from the wound.... It wasn't until I turned my hand over and saw the golf ball sized lump developing.... A&E time

    So please everyone.. Less haste in what you do and if you have an incident it may not be apparent straight away!

    I only open my mouth...to change feet...

    Heal quickly those Phillips screwdrivers pack a punch and we tend to say one size fits all.

    That's not good, Mark.
    I was able to use the 'Bad Luck Mate ' symbol but don't understand why Phil thought it needed a lucky 4-leafed shamrock!
    Hope the hand doesnt give you too much gipp.

    Wise words Mark. If we all took just a few seconds to think the world would be a safer place. The words we should never use in this context ‘ I was being careful’. I am sure we have all done it, but if your experience can make us think twice next time that is one more injury avoided. Thanks for sharing.

    Yes Mark, always good to remind ourselves of how easily a small mistake can lead to significant consequences, although preferably without practical examples of course!

    Hope it heals up swiftly and doesn’t cause you too much discomfort in the meantime.

    Cheers
    Ash

    Then you had better watch out for those misbehaving "01phillips screwdrivers"
