When working with metal materials, hand tools, and workshop tools, it’s more than likely that someone will injure themselves. However, we are attempting to minimize this with the help of our fabulous safety team.
We regulate the use of tools with our specially designed Safety badges that indicate the skill level with tools of the badge’s person. These badges are leveled by color, the lowest level, Blue & Purple, being unable to use shop tools without mentor supervision, to the highest, Red, being able to use all shop tools without supervision.
To advance to Green or Yellow badges, click the links below. Remember not to skip badge tests, as you will have to take them one by one.
