Saw Shop owners distribute OR-FACE safety manual
John and Debbie Phipps and their son Nick have owned State Street Saw Shop in Salem, Oregon, for nearly nine years. They have been distributing the OR-FACE manual, “Fallers Logging Safety” to their customers for many years. Debbie called recently for another supply. I took the opportunity to deliver the manuals and to ask them a few questions. I found out that whenever it seemed that a customer was a novice and needed help, they directed them to the manual. In addition, they also encouraged the use of personal protective equipment such as leather chaps and face shields. Preventing injuries is their primary motivation. We should all applaud the Phipps for caring about the well-being of customers. Company owners like the Phipps are key to a safer community.
