Eye Protection

The all important health and safety rules to take note of whilst using the B.15 Workshop facilities. It is mandatory that all users must have completed the induction videos as directed followed by a one to one induction with us and that they have received and read the General Users Guide.

Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) including Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) requirements can be found by all machines. Always ask for assistance when using a machine for the first time or when you are uncertain about any aspect of the task you are wanting to complete.
