You must be safety trained to independently use the workshops and equipment at benchspace.
But don’t let that stress you out, we have a simple three step pathway to training.
We offer Safety Training for each workshop as either standalone classes or sometimes included in our Project and Skills classes. You do not need to be a member to take a safety training class.
After completing safety training we’ll review your knowledge of workshop and machine safety systems, the correct operation of equipment and basic machine maintenance.
The last step is a period of supervised machine use. Depending on the workshop, this can be completed during your safety training class/assessment or for some equipment may require a longer period of logged use.
In some cases we may recognise prior professional experience in place of a training qualification. Contact us if you would like us to review your workshop experience towards access to our facilities.
