In community shops, safety is paramount. Equipment can be inadvertently left in poor repair, dusty and worn conditions. A quick checklist can mean the difference between safe operation and serious consequences.
At Nova Labs in Reston, VA, it takes a fleet of stewards each donating 5 to 10 hours per week to keep the large, well-used makerspace operating. As part of this effort, I took some time to design and publish some “Pre-Flight” and “Post-Flight” checklist for tool users on a variety of tools. Feel free to take a look, remix and reuse as you need.
Thank you for your continued support.
