We need guidance for eve-w/e workshop access and lone working #541
Following from issue #246.
With the imminent advent of increased out of hours access to the workshop. We need to think about a new set of Induction procedures, which both ensure people have an excellent knowledge of all the different tools they may need to use, and clearly codify which machinery they can and cannot use when they are on their own.
I think this would involve better identifing the induction for workshop use for out-of-hours members, and ensuring the that all out of hours members have an induction for the whole workshop as part of their access.
I'd really appreciate any help here, on the sorts of things that need to be included in the induction, any out of hours procedures we may need, and what is and isn't appropriate for out of hours access usage.
At the same time we might follow up on grievance proceduresfor people using the space inappropriately. I've included links from the previous issue below.

We need to check with current insurers about the possibility of increased premiums due to extended hours.
Lone worker vulnerability is an issue - example given at the organisers' meeting was of a beeper for anyone working on their own, but another discussion is then around who is on the other end of that beeper.
One proposal was 24hr access when available - essentially, offer far extended access and find out when people are actually interested in being in. Costs are also a factor due to increased heating and lighting of all hours access.
This was discussed in the community meeting yesterday:
We did list a few specific concerns and questions to resolve:
We have it on the list to re-visit this at the Directors meeting on Monday and try to resolve these questions.
We should have a separate new induction form, with a question to confirm you’ve filled in the general induction form.
We should also have the information written up (wiki page?) to give to people. First draft is here: https://github.com/DoESLiverpool/wiki/wiki/OutOfHours
