If There Were a Pill for Procrastination…

I’d Take it Tomorrow.

We’ve lived in our “new” house for almost 13 years now with an unfinished backyard.  Just dirt, weeds, and rocks.  For 13 years, I lived like an ostrich hoping someone else would take on this chore.  Design it, submit it to the Homeowners Association and hire the landscapers. (Procrastination is my superpower.)

Needless to say, the responsibility fell to me and as I’m writing this my grandson is busy implementing the backyard plans.

Are you like me and procrastinate on tasks you find complex and out of your comfort zone?  If safety is one of those confusing subjects, I’m hoping this information will help.


If you are a die-hard DIYer, these websites have free training and support materials:

Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)

California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal-OSHA)

Two other OSHA offices that have excellent training materials that I regularly use are Oregon and Washington. Both have English and Spanish materials.

Oregon OSHA

Washington OSHA (WISHA) 

The Center for Construction Research and Training

If you’re in manufacturing, I’m affiliated with a government-supported (Department of Commerce) private non-profit corporation that provides consulting services to small and medium-sized manufacturers in California.  They have the ability to provide some training free to the client through training grants and other services are fee-based.  

California Manufacturing Technology Consulting (CMTC)
