The DIY Woodshop values the safety of its staff and members, above all else, and will take several measures to help prevent injuries.
A woodshop safety class and machine use qualification are mandatory for everyone (including professionals) before accessing the shop and/or machines to ensure safety knowledge and knowledge of the proper machine(s) use. A Member Agreement & Liability Waiver must be executed prior to use of the shop.
Skill levels will be assessed and each member will be assigned a color reflecting their skill level. A badge indicating the skill level of each member must be worn at ALL times while on the shop floor. Machines and/or the area around the machines will be color-coded to match the allowed use for each skill level.
On-site Shop Pro personnel will supervise the shop floor and must be able to easily verify the skill level and authorization of use for the various machines. Shop pros will always be available to aid members with questions on proper use and safety. Our shop has state of the art machinery, with the latest safety features, including SawStop brand table saws.
