FABlab Safety, Use, and Procedures

The safety of students, faculty, staff, and visitors is a primary consideration in every activity.  The success of this program depends upon the cooperation and support of everyone.

In order to use the FABLAB, everyone must complete and successfully pass a safety module for each piece of equipment and be certified by the staff before operating any of the machines on their own.

General Shop Safety
The hazards associated with shop work require special safety considerations.  Whether you work with metal, wood, or any other piece of equipment the potential hazards for injury can be numerous.

In case of an emergency call 2-5666 from the lab phone, located on the desk.  The FABLAB is located in the RTC, room 1112.

Log
Anyone entering the FABLAB will be required to register with the FABLAB staff.

Personal Protection
There are several measures one must take to protect themselves from shop hazards.

  • Do not wear loose fitting clothing
  • Do not wear long sleeve shirts/sweaters
  • Do not wear neckties
  • No jewelry should be worn in the FABLAB
  • Make certain long hair is not loose, but pulled back away from equipment
  • Always wear safety glasses and ear protection where required, such as woodworking, welding, grinding, chiseling, or chipping



Failure to follow these guidelines, procedures, and instructions of the FABLAB will result in the loss of privileges to the lab.
