Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) Documents

JHA documents go through the step-by-step process of setting up and using a machine, identifying potential safety hazards in each step.

Material Safety Data Sheets

The Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are required to be posted for all materials found in the MakerSpace.


Preventing injury to people (and equipment) is our first priority. To do this, users must demonstrate knowledge and competence. After completing Basic Training, users can earn "badges" that certify their competence. The various badges, and the equipment authorized by that badge, is listed below. For each badge, a user builds one or more "widgets" using a combination of tools.

It is of the utmost importance that users obey the mandatory Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) requirements when using tools in the MakerSpace. Reminder signs are placed throughout the MakerSpace, and more detailed information can be found in the Job Hazard Analysis (JHA) forms below, copies of which are also available in the MakerSpace.

Basic Training

Every MakerSpace user (defined as anyone who touches any tool or piece of equipment) must complete the Basic Training online course, and sign the waiver form (available from any Ninja). Completion of Basic Training allows entry and access to hand tools in the MakerSpace.
