There’s nowhere like the shop. Whether it’s used for metal fabrication, woodworking, printmaking, sewing, ceramics—or all, some, or none of the above—the shop is a magical place where ideas become objects, where projects literally take shape.
However, while the shop giveth, the shop can taketh away. Anywhere there’s heavy machinery, potential dangers exist. Common risks in the shop include falling, electrocution, being struck by an object, and being caught in between objects.
