Membership and Safety Orientation

The Membership and Safety Orientation sessions at Nova Labs ensure safety of you, others nearby, and the equipment. They also provide you with usage instruction to avoid wasting time and materials on the machines at Nova Labs.

More info here.

You Must Attend One Orientation Session

Before Using The Machine Tools At Nova Labs!


  • Sign a Waiver! For your safety and our peace of mind.
  • Membership Spiel - Learn about the memberships we offer and the benefits.
  • Machine Tool Training - Become educated on our in-house tools. We'll explain what's required before using them on a regular basis.

This session will not qualify you to run the following tools. Look for separate orientation sessions on each machine:

  • Makerbot
  • Laser cutter
  • Blacktoe CNC router
  • Vinyl cutter

We can arrange special sessions of orientation. Email Ted or Nikolai to request one!

    Thanks to Nikolai for coming to give the orientation.

    I did have some questions on things that were missed:

    1) Where is the first aid kit (for when someone fails to follow safety protocol).
    2) Is the emergency responder information nearby the phone (for when someone REALLY fails to follow safety protocols).

      Sorry for delayed response, Brian.
      We have basic first aid kits (band-aids level) in each room - it's a white box on the wall.
      I will post directions to local ER and urgent care place on a wall in the woodshop. Thanks for the reminder!

    Started a bit late, but that gave me time to get a general tour and meet some members.

      Mark, if you are comfortable with basic wood shop power tools (table saw, bandsaw, drill press etc.), we might be able to check you out on basic safety during Ops Social. Please let me know if you plan to attend.
