Safety Gear for Kids
Few things give me greater joy than sharing my love of woodworking and remodeling with my 4-year-old-son. It’s something that my father shared with me too. I remember putting on a pair of swim goggles when there was a good chance of flying debris because we didn’t have kid-sized safety glasses–maybe they didn’t exist. Hearing protection meant covering your ears. With my hearing already compromised, I’m trying to to do a better job.
Thankfully, a number of makers are now making pint-sized safety gear. Here are a few things I found for my son’s upcoming birthday.
These little muffs from Peltor are designed for kids up to age 7. They come in pink and blue and sell for about $13. Worn correctly, they reduce noise by 22dB. I found them at Enviro Saftey Products. The company sells muffs for older kids too.
