Verantwoordelijkheid / responsibility

The ultimate responsibility for a safe working environment and behavior lies with the board of the MakerSpace Leiden. This makes the situation different compared to working at home. You need to be aware of the safety of other people as well, not just yourself.

Participants should behave safely and report unsafe behaviors and situations to the board.

With a number of machines, it is mandatory to report certain faults or problems. This should be done as soon as possible; but at the latest within 24 hours. This is in the machine description.
