(or “tree killing”, thank you Laura Lemay)
I finally have time to start working on training and safety docs.
While I don’t want to copy the TechShop docs I’d like to use them for reference, but good and bad. Does anyone have copies of these docs? I shredded all my training docs when TS went under.
I’d also like to look at docs from other workspaces or universities. I am staff at CMU right now and can pull some of those, but if you are at Pitt or some other space and can get printed or electronic docs I’d appreciate a copy.
At first I see two categories of documents.
how to use the and not injure/kill someone. This would be a training doc similar to a SBD or CMU EHS course. Different tools would have different levels of docs, it’s damned hard to injure yourself with the laser cutter but the metal lathe will kill you given the chance.
a set of “how to work safely in this area of the shop” documents. If you’re doing lasercutting and want to talk to a friend at the metal lathe, here’s the procedure. Or if you’re working on the metal lathe, here is why on Gopod’s Green Planet you DO NOT use the air compressor to clean the shavings off your clothes and out of your hair. (No, really, don’t do that.)
