Safety

We encourage members to act in a manner that is safe for themselves and other members. We ask that everyone keep our basic safety guidelines in mind when working in the space. In particular:

  • Know where the first aid kits and fire extinguishers are located and be familiar with their operation.
  • Use safety equipment generously. While working in the space, use eye protection, hearing protection, gloves and aprons to keep yourself safe.
  • Know the safe and appropriate procedures for operating tools. Never use a tool that you have not been cleared to use. If you don’t know how to use a tool, ask for help or training. If you don’t feel comfortable with a piece of equipment, don’t use it, ask for help.
  • In an emergency, please call 911. Our address is 605 W. Ponce de Leon Ave., Decatur GA, 30030.

A safe space is a place where people don’t get hurt. As a member, you are making a commitment to make sure that you and others in the space are using the equipment safely.

In addition, you are also making a commitment to make sure that you and others in the space are treated with respect and kindness. We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for everyone, including members, volunteers, and guests. Our policies are open for all to review.
