I believe my shop has several safety and fire code violations with no ventilation.
Am I asking too much?!
I just want some ventilation and to not blow the place up. Anyone have any advice on talking this guy into it? im kind of venting.
So I've ran this shop for 5 years now. We are the biggest store in town. We were acquired and bought out recently. My shop is mostly Mohawk based. I've heard the stories with fire inspectors. I've heard the horror fire stories too. I've tried to talk the old owner into it. And recently the new owner but he said his other shop doesn't have ventilation either. So I am assuming history will repeat its self. I've asked but have not got an answer. All im asking for is some ventilation here. It aint even got to be Osha approved(but it should be).
Last month, lets just say I had some test results come back i'm not too happy about. I use a respirator religiously might I add.
Being able to spray a large dark matte table top would be nice as well. It makes no sense to mark these tables down 500 like the last one. I can rub and use blending formulas with retarders as much as the next guy. But come on. Some times we just have to spray the whole top. Its a furniture repair shop you know...
I'm trying to be nice about this. But i'm literally about to draw the line in the sand. I am almost 40. I don't want to be around the fumes anymore. I like my job but I don't want it to kill me. They are not the only store in town that needs help. There is a shortage of repair guys in the area, im considering transitioning to flying solo and trying to grab warranty claims elsewhere. Anyone have any advice on handling this nicely? Am I asking for too much here? Too make things more interesting... this dude is on something. I got a feeling this guy is on some kind of stimulant.
