HEALTH AND SAFETY AND ADDITIONAL MEASURES RELATIVE TO COVID-19 

Health and Safety

INFORMATION FOR MANAGING HEALTH AND SAFETY DURING THESE UNPRECEDENTED TIMES 

Health and Safety is the responsibility of everyone   If you see something which you consider a potential danger please take your concerns to Richard immediately.

1. There are four coal forges and two gas forges (one gas forge is directly under where the photo was taken, the other is on the wall opposite to the left of the design board).  Instruction on how to use these safety will be given before you use them.

2. Each workstation is set two metres from the next.

3. Each workstation has identical sets of tools, so you are NOT sharing tools with anyone.  Should you wish to use any other equipment, ie the power hammer, Richard will turn this on and off for you.

4. A PA system has been installed so students can stand apart and clearly  hear when Richard is talking and demonstrating.

5. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be single use only, other than safety goggles which are always sterilised after use. The gloves provided will be yours to take home, as will the individual packs of hand wipes provided.  (Should you wish to bring you own safety glasses please do so, but note that these must be worn at all times). 

6. There are sufficient mugs for each student to have a clean mug at each beverage break, and individual bottled water will be available throughout the day.  Should you wish to bring your own mug please do so.

7. Please bring your own packed lunch. 

8. Washing and toilet facilities are available and we will give instructions on keeping these clean and sanitised after use 

9. For your own safety, and for that of your fellow students (and Richard of course) would you please bring and wear a face mask.  We will have a few available for those who don’t have one.
