Safety Protocols



We have posted this list of safety protocols because of the recent concerns of teams and coaches about how this year’s competition, Hot Shot, could be very dangerous. These are the safety protocols that we follow each day to keep every team member safe. For team safety is a big deal, and if your team is also concerned about safety, just follow these protocols.

 Safety Protocols:

  1. When team members are working with something that could damage their eyes, we wear safety glasses. Each team member has their own pair. 
  2. If team members are working around nauseous fumes or something that could get in their mouths or noses, they wear dust masks. Note: sometimes fumes are given off when we cut plastics (ABS, Plexiglas, Lexan, etc.), so we always wear masks then as well.
  3.  Our biggest protocol is that when the main power for the robot is on, no one touches it. We are very concerned about a finger getting caught in the gears.
  4. We also made it mandatory to place safety shields (where possible) around  gears to make sure that fingers or clothes don’t get caught.

 Good luck this season and stay safe!
