safety equipment

I've never been to buy safety equipment.

While visiting the Spindletop Museum, we saw many of the items used everyday by the oilmen. Some things have not changed too much over time. Even back at the time of the Lucas Gusher, the men were using some types of safety equipment. I even saw an old safety hard hat. It looks a little different from what is used today, but it's good to see that they were taking care to be safe. I am sure though, that many of today's safety standards came about because of some things that happened through those early years of oil drilling. It's good to know that today, folks can do their work in a safer environment.

That I'd like to see.
