So, the fixed caster on the Techsew got me thinking:
Do other areas have lock out / tag out devices for their areas? Or would a ‘do not use’ sign work well enough?
We have a few for the metalshop, but right now only metalshop people have keys. So if they end up on equipment in textiles or ceramics, those leads would not have an easy way to unlock the lock out / tag outs. I know fablab has down for maintenance signs.
There’s also the incident forms in the welcome area for people to fill out, but that doesn’t do the greatest at immediately letting members know something broke.
Do we need to come up with something better to communicate that equipment is down for repairs?
