Always wear appropriate clothing or personal protective equipment (PPE) for the task at hand, such as long sleeves and pants, safety glasses, closed-toe shoes, aprons, and gloves (if requires, all are self-provided), especially when working with sharp or hot materials.
Before using any tools or equipment, read the instruction manual or ask for assistance from a trained staff member or supervisor.

Avoid horseplay or unsafe behaviour while in the makerspace.
Report any accidents, injuries, or unsafe conditions immediately to university’s safety officer or project advisor.
Do not use any tools or equipment that you are not trained to use. Attend the necessary training and certification courses before operating any machinery.
Always follow proper electrical safety procedures when using power tools or equipment. Do not use damaged or frayed cords.
Be aware of the location and proper use of fire extinguishers, first aid kits, and emergency exits.
