Trillium Hollow Cohousing - Workshop Use & Safety Agreement Approved August 7, 2005 Thanks to donations by generous members and friends, we have a well equipped workshop. Use of the workshop is a privilege based on following safety and use expectations. I understand and agree to: 1. Use only community owned items unless given specific permission by the owner of those personally owned items that are marked. Owners of personal items may put them in locked or unlock boxes. The community assumes no responsibility for personal items stored in the garage. 2. Sign out all tools, machinery and equipment used outside the workshop. Owners of personal items are responsible for sign out and return of their items they allow others to use. Off site use of tools requires advance approval by a team member. 3. Report to the Workshop Task Team and/or Repair and Maintenance team loss, damage breakage, or theft of any item from the workshop and negotiate a solution acceptable to the team or community. A functioning workshop requires that tools, hardware and materials be returned to their designated location. Repeated failure to sign-out tools and materials or return same to their designated location may result in loss of workshop privileges. Members currently are Len, Charles, Ken S, Ivan and Gathel. 4. We strongly recommend that shop users wear proper safety equipment (eye shield, mask, gloves etc) when using saws, drills, and grinders and any other dangerous tools or equipment and wear foot ware when in the workshop. Not doing so exposes the user to significant danger of injury for which the community is held harmless. Anyone choosing to not use proper safety equipment assumes full responsibility for any negative outcomes and holds the community harmless. 5. Before using electric saws, drills, grinders and other potentially dangerous equipment obtain training as needed from a qualified person. 6. Be responsible for communicating these policies to any guest or vendors before they use the shop and be responsible for their behavior and policy compliance. 7. Hold harmless the THOA board, its agents, neighbors and guests from any liability or responsibility for injury resulting from workshop or tool use. If there is a dispute, the provisions of the TH Bylaws will apply. 8. Always close the workshop doors to protect children and possessions. 9. Residents' children under 10 may not be in the workshop unless accompanied by an adult who is directly supervising them. Parents who wish to allow children age 10 or older in the shop will be asked to sign an approval that releases the community from liability. The parents of nonresident visiting children over age 10 who wish to use the shop will be asked to sign an approval that releases the community from liability. Parents who allow their children to use the workshop are encouraged to train their children in the safe use of tools or have someone else provide the training. The kid gate must be kept in place unless materials are being moved in and out. 10. Quiet hours (between 9AM-9PM (Sunday-Thursday) on week days and 9AM-10PM on weekends (Friday and Saturday). will be honored in workshop by residents in the larger community, guests and vendors respecting the neighbors living above the larger community. I and my guests who use the workshop and any vendors agree to live by the letter and spirit of this agreement. Compliance is based on self-monitoring, feedback from other users and from the Workshop & R & M Team and finally board action for non-compliance complaints. Not following these agreements may result in loss of workshop use privileges. Agreed by: Name Date
