Member Topics:

Helpful Hint

  • The Space was built by members stating: “I WILL”; then doing it.
  • We strongly recommend a member never utter the words “You should”.

Safety Note

  • If you see something unsafe, say something, do something. Speak to the member, unplug the machine, add a label warning about an unsafe thing. It’s hard to draw a box around every case, but the key is to be pro-active.
