Safety Accreditation Tests
Members are required to complete Safety accreditation tests for each machine that they intend to use. Members must be logged in in order to take any of the tests. If you are not a member then take a few minutes to join up and become part of the Woodcraft Guild ACT.
Each test is a series of 10,15, 20 or more statements that may be true or false and reflect what you have learned from the readings and advice recommended. The statements relate to issues of safety for the operator and for the machine itself. The test does not certify competency in use nor expertise – these come with practice and diligence. Your test result will be logged against your membership details and periodically you will be required to repeat the tests to ensure that you remain safety aware. 100% accuracy is required for a ‘pass’.
When you have successfully answered all questions, your result will be emailed to you, together with a printable certificate of completion for your records. Completion of the safety accreditation test allows you to do a practical test with an accredited trainer. A copy of your test result will also be sent to the accreditation team so that they can plan the next training session for you. Once this step is completed you may use the machine unsupervised, or may assist others who are not yet accredited.
If you are not successful, the system will automatically take you back to the beginning of the test to start over again.
