Training and Safety at the Makerspace
To be able to use machines by themselves and have 24/7 access to certain spaces, users need to pass certain safety quizzes to ensure that they are aware of all the relevant precautions. Some machines may require additional in-person training for certification. Manuals and quizzes can be found at make.
Once a quiz is passed, swipe access will be granted automatically within a few days.
Makerspace stewards are trained on how to use these machines throughout the semester. Users who need additional help passing safety quizzes or using machinery are encouraged to seek out a steward during open hours and ask questions!
