Safety and Training

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 a training session run by one our trainers prior to being allowed to use the machine tools.

Booking Training

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