    Job security

    Hello,
    I know that there is quite a difference between Europe and America. Anyway, I have this curiosity.

    Do you apply security in your technical printers?

    If the answer is yes, what are your precautions? (eg mask, safety shoes, gloves, fire extinguisher in the vehicle, etc.)

    Do you mean PPE (personal protection equipment)?

    Going into factory's, mines, labs there should be strict PPE requirements but here in South-Africa it depends.
    If its a local company only if health and safety is on there case.
    If its a German or American company then almost always, most of the time only a reflective jacket and safety shoes with a hard hat.
    You can get by because you get escorted straight to an office.

    Drive a ford that pisses gas over the engine every time an injector seal breaks, so yes i carry a fire extinguisher.

    Whatever

    Take Allen's advice first.
    The only thing I'd like to add is that you might consider a grounded wrist strap. And for two reasons:
    If you are using a vacuum to clean up toner that doesn't have a grounded nozzle like I did back in the day, you might experience static electricity discharges with the hand you are holding the nozzle with. At least I did back in the day, I can't speak for anyone else here, but I did find that unpleasant, and wore the properly connected wrist strap for relief. It worked pretty well too.
    The second reason is that while I've handled circuit boards without any "protection", every once in a while the static electricity buildup would wreck one of them. Generally that happened at the stupidest times, too. I wore a grounded wrist strap after a while and never encountered that again.
