Safety in the shed

Woodworking is inherently a hazardous activity.  The correct attitude towards your personal safety and that of others, as well as the care of tools and machinery, is imperative.

The Guild policy on Health and Safety is directly linked to the system of Accreditation for safe use of workshop equipment.
