Your safety in the studio and workshop
We are firmly commited to a culture of safe work practices. Your safety and the safety of your fellow students is our priority.
Stuart and Matt have extensive experience in workplace safety training and hold current Certification in Workplace Training and Assessment.
We provide full training in workshop safety covering:
your personal protective equipment
instruction in the use of all hand tools
instruction in the safe operation of all machinery
the correct use of jigs
the correct use of all machine aids like push sticks and paddles, extensions and guards
In addition our workshop has been designed so that our benchroom offers instructors line of sight supervision into the machine room.
We frequently make custom jigs (or templates) so that you can accurately and safely repeat specific woodworking processes. Our Felder machines are made for professional workshops and are fitted with standard safety features including robust overhead guards - as opposed to crown guards which are connected to the riving knife. But we have also purchased a variety of additional safety accessories including hold downs and extensions. In fact everything that is currently available to make our Felder machines and their operation as accurate, efficient and as safe as possible.
