Stored mechanical energy - springs
Working at heights
Flammable, combustible, or explosive materials
Chemical reactions, highly reactive substances
“High voltage” (anything exceeding extra-low voltage: “50 V a.c. or 120 V ripple-free d.c.”)
Stored electrical energy - capacitors, inductors
Liquids or gases under pressure
High temperature processes (furnaces, ovens…)
Cold materials (e.g. liquid nitrogen)
Focused or high-intensity light sources
Some tools at the Artifactory, such as the laser cutters and the mill, are inherently dangerous.
You must be trained, deemed competent, and authorised before you use these tools.
If you are bringing your own tools to the Artifactory, you must assess if the tools could pose a risk to people or property.
Our priorities are:
|People||The health and safety of people is our top priority.|
|Property||Protecting our property and premises.|
|Community||Protecting our reputation in the community - i.e. our social license to operate.|
(Editor's note: Usually the acronym would be “HSEC” and would include environment.)
Dangerous projects must be approved by the committee.
Before you work on a project at the Artifactory, you must assess if your project could:
You must demonstrate to the committee that:
The committee may require you to submit a formal risk assessment, in writing, before approving your project.
Training is beyond scope of this policy.
However some things to consider below.
The Artifactory is a shared space
The following types of projects are absolutely prohibited:
