  • A hackerspace is not a work place but the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 still applies.

How - The spirit of the rule

  • If you do not know how to use equipment and its use is apparently dangerous then seek help.
  • Weapons, explosives and bio-hazards should not be brought to the space for hacking.
  • Nottingham Hackspace DO NOT approve of any illegal actions.
  • Do nothing to endanger yourself or others.
  • Do NOT dick around with tools, electricity, fire or anything else that could be expected to hurt or damage yourself or other people.
