Use of Tools and Equipment

All tools and equipment must be used for their intended purpose only and in accordance with safe operating procedure.

Do not use a tool or piece of equipment until you are familiar with it’s safe use. Induction is required before using nominated tools and equipment.

Wear and tear of tools & equipment is to be expected. Damage should be reported. You will not be blamed; it is better that everyone knows, so that it can be fixed and avoid accidents and disappointment.

Tools which are broken or unsafe must be marked with an appropriate tag, and removed from use. Report problems with tools and equipment to the directors.

We do not lend or loan tools for use outside the Makerspace, otherwise they are not available to members when they come in to use them and they also tend to disappear. For tool borrowing, try the Library of Things instead.
