Safety and Inductions

A number of the machine tools we have in our workshop have the capacity to cause operators and people in proximity to them serious and permanent injury. In order to minimise the risk to operators we require that members complete an induction session run by one our members prior to being allowed to use the machine tools.

Booking Inductions

If you would like to request an induction please keep an eye on our #equipment-inductions Slack channel . Induction sessions are announced there or you can post a request.
