Safety in Firebird jewellery studio

Due to Covid19 the health and safety in the studio has changed.

We will provide face masks during the classes, you will need to use the hand sanitizer when arriving and use the tools you are provide, if you need to use a different tool you will need to ask to the tutor. 

All the tools and surfaces will be sanitize and clean after classes.

 

Using common sense and good judgement are your best safety equipment and always remember:

 You are responsible for your own safety!

 

Please take your time and read the Risk assessment for the workshop.

 

 

Power Tools

The three big rules:  If you hair is long, tie it up! No long flowing sleeves.  No long or dangling jewellery.  Why?  Long hair has been ripped from peoples heads, along with their scalps.  Others have been strangled by dangling jewellery/scarves. Ripping off a sleeve and the arm in it has also occurred.  

Power tools like electric drills, buffing machines, grinders, etc. are potentially dangerous tools when safety is not a prime consideration.

Eye protection and lung protection also needs to be considered when operating power tools.  Is it throwing off dust, steel particles, chips of wood?  If so, wear a mask and safety goggles.

 

Soldering

Please read the risk assessment, use of heat, hot work processes and soldering.

 

Dust

Wear a dust mask when sanding, buffing or drilling.  Decide on what type to wear depending on the type of dust. When drilling shells, glass, pearls, etc. drill them in a small tray of water or keep them wet.  The dust from these items (as well as others) is very dangerous to your lungs.  The water will keep down the dust and keep the material cool. 

 

All safety equipment is provided by the studio, please use it.
