As the machinery is operated by experienced staff, you do not need to complete any safety training to submit jobs to the Fab Lab. However, if you wish to assemble your parts in the Forbo or Baldwin Spencer model making space after business hours you must complete:
  • Level 00 - MSD Online Building Induction
  • Level 01 - Safety Induction (Online)
Complete the required training and inductions here.
To have access to the Machine Workshop and machinery you need to have completed the Level 00, Level 01, Level 02 and Level 03 Safety Inductions (these must be retaken every calendar year). For more information please visit Maker Spaces Access and Inductions.
