OSML Membership Terms and Conditions

1. AGE VERIFICATION

I hereby verify that I am at least 18 years of age, and agree to provide any necessary identification to Open Source Maker Labs (OSML) upon request. Members under the age of 18 must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or legal guardian during the entire time at OSML facilities.

2. FACILITY POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

All users of the lab, excluding the office area and classroom, must take the Basic Safety Class and sign the OSML Liability Waiver. Safety glasses MUST be worn in all areas of the lab, excluding the office area and classroom. No long hair and no jewelry is allowed near powered equipment, machines or tools. Safety is paramount. All users of the OSML facilities are responsible for their own safety. OSML will not be held liable or responsible for any injury sustained by using any of the equipment, tools or facilities of OSML. Unsafe actions or improper use of tools and equipment may result in termination of membership. Members must report unsafe activities to OSML staff as soon as possible. If at any time you notice ANY machines, tools or equipment not functioning properly, please contact any OSML staff immediately. As a member, you are exclusively entitled to use our entire facility, pending safety approval by management, completing the Basic Safety Class and taking any necessary classes. The following policies are in place to ensure fair access for all members to our facilities. Failure to abide by these policies may result in termination of your membership. Any area you work in must be left cleaner than when you started. All equipment, supplies and tools must be used with proper care. If you need help with the use of anything in the facility or have questions, please notify OSML staff immediately. Failure to follow specific guidelines and procedures may result in the member being held responsible for any repairs, replacement and labor costs of damaged OSML property.

3. CLASS POLICY

A) Registration

Classes are scheduled according to demand, and new classes are added on a monthly basis. Please check our website or stop by the OSML front desk for up-to-date course information. Comprehensive course descriptions can be found on-line, and it is recommended that you read through them fully prior to registering. Advanced registration is necessary for all classes, unless otherwise noted in class description. Instructors, class times, and class dates are subject to change. If we reschedule a class to another date, students are entitled to a full refund. OSML reserves the right to change instructors without prior notification, and to change class location and meeting times by up to an hour with 48 hours prior notice. To register for a class, students must pay in full at the time of enrollment. OSML accepts most major credit cards and cash. Checks may be accepted from members only. To sign up after the registration deadline, please call or email us to ensure space and enrollment is still available.

B) Withdrawals & Transfers

In the event a student must withdraw from a class, he or she may do so any time before the registration deadline of the class (normally up to 72 hours before the class), and will receive a 75% refund of class cost plus any equipment or material fees. Class enrollment is nontransferable: requesting to transfer to another section of the same class is considered a withdrawal. Withdrawals on or after the class registration deadline are not refundable and course fees are not transferable. A credit of your enrollment fee may be issued for medically excused emergencies (with documentation) or family bereavement. Other than this, there will be no exceptions. Please give us notice as far in advance as possible.

C) Material & Equipment Fees

Classes that make use of tools or supplies will most likely require a material or equipment fee. This pays for in-class consumable items (e.g., drill bits, gas, wood, metal, etc.) and the upkeep of tools used for that specific class. In some circumstances, students may also be required to purchase certain supplies on their own. This will be clearly indicated in the full on-line course description.

D) Missed Classes & Being Late

Missing the first day of a course may be grounds for withdrawal without refund. Email us if you know you are going to miss the first day of a course. Advance notice may allow some sort of accommodation, such as a paid makeup session. However, OSML is not obligated to offer complimentary makeup sessions outside class time or in concurrent or future course sections. Instructors are not obligated to catch students up during scheduled class time for missed sessions or excessive lateness.

E) Regular Memberships

Members are able to enroll in free classes (excludes material costs) based on their payment plan. Members are required to pay any material or equipment fees associated with a class at the time of registration. Withdrawal and transfer policies are the same for free classes as described under the Class Policy section of this document. Regular members are required to attend the classes in which they enroll. Absence from the first day, missing one session (for classes between one and four sessions), and missing two or more sessions (for classes greater than four sessions) will each be construed as a withdrawal, and will result in the full cost of the course being charged to the member. Advance notice of missed classes is strongly encouraged. Please email OSML as soon as possible. Excessive lateness is strongly discouraged. Instructors are not obligated to catch students up during scheduled class time for missed sessions or excessive lateness. In an effort to make the classes at OSML accessible to the community at large, we reserve several seats per class for non-members.

F) If We Cancel or Reschedule a Class

Most classes offered at OSML must have a minimum of 4 students registered in order for the class to commence. In the event a course does not receive sufficient enrollment, it may be canceled. Students will be notified of cancellation or rescheduling at least 24 hours prior to the start of the class. In the event of a cancellation, students will be refunded within 10 business days. If we reschedule a class to another date, students are also entitled to a full refund. OSML reserves the right to change instructors without prior notification, and meeting times by up to an hour with 24 hours prior notice.

G) Class Feedback

At the conclusion of every class, students may receive an emailed evaluation request. We depend upon your feedback to help us improve our course offerings. If you have any issue with a class you are currently enrolled in, please either raise your issue with the instructor at the end of the class meeting or email us. It is our general experience that most issues can be satisfactorily addressed during class or before the course concludes. Complaint resolution may involve contacting the instructor and other students. All emailed comments will remain confidential upon request.

4. USING THE FACILITIES DURING CLASSES

Areas and equipment marked as reserved for classes are for the exclusive use of instructors and students beginning 30 minutes prior to the start of class. A full class schedule can be obtained from the Front Desk. Please be considerate and refrain from excessively noisy work during class. Classes will receive priority on certain equipment, tools and areas during classes. If you are on a deadline with a project, please speak with the instructor. We want you to finish your project and have the class be a success.

5. SHOP RULES AND CONDUCT

  • Always wear proper eye and ear protection while in the shop. This applies regardless if you are working on machinery or not. Activities of others can affect your safety.
  • Loose long sleeves and/or jewelry are NOT allowed near any powered tools, equipment or machines that have moving parts.
  • Long hair MUST be tied back above the neck at all times while in OSML.
  • No member may use any shop equipment unless authorized to do so through by successfully passing the appropriate OSML classes.
  • Only authorized OSML members are permitted in the work areas. Keeping foot traffic to a minimum creates a safer and more comfortable working environment.
  • Any repairs and/or replacement cost due to neglect will be the responsibility of the individual who caused the damage.
  • No pets are allowed in any of the workshop areas.
  • Do not attempt to oil, clean, adjust or repair any machine while it is running.
  • Performing maintenance on moving machinery can lead to injury or death.
  • Never open any covers, casing, or shrouds while the machine is running.
  • Ensure that all machine guarding is in place and functioning properly.
  • Inform OSML staff if the guarding is damaged or malfunctioning.
  • Malfunctioning guarding will not properly protect you and becomes a hazard itself.
  • Never leave machines running unattended. Others may not notice the machine is running and be injured by moving tooling.
  • Do not try to stop the machine with your hands or body. Stopping the machine with your body can result in entanglement, dismemberment or death.
  • Always let moving parts come to a stop under their own power.
  • Always keep hands, hair, feet, etc, clear of all moving machinery at all times.
  • Loose fitting clothes such as baggy sweatshirts or long sleeve shirts with loose cuffs should not be worn in the shop.
  • Double-check that all tooling and work pieces are properly supported and clamped prior to starting the machine.
  • Heavy or unwieldy work pieces often require special support structures or assistance from other members or shop support.
  • Always ask for help if you are unsure if your work piece requires additional support.
  • Always remove chuck keys, wrenches and other tools from machines after making adjustments.
  • Chuck keys left in the chuck when the machine turns on become dangerous flying objects.
  • Ask for help when moving awkward or heavy objects. This will protect you and those around you from injury.
  • Never start a conversation with or interrupt someone who is using machinery. Always wait for them to complete their task before talking.
  • Never attempt to squeeze behind someone while they are using machinery. Always stop and wait for them to complete their task before passing.
  • Work at a pace that is comfortable for you. Rushing will compromise your safety and increases the chance of damaging equipment.
  • Listen to the machine(s) ? if something does not sound right, shut it down. Often if the machine sounds abnormal to you, it probably is not operating properly.
  • Inform OSML staff if you believe the machine to be operating abnormally.
  • If you do not know, or are unsure how to do something ? ASK! Do not engage in any activity that you are not comfortable with and are trained on.
  • Trust your judgment. Check with OSML staff or another member who has more experience.
  • Every member is responsible for keeping their membership cards secure. There will be a replacement fee for all lost or stolen keys and cards.

6. SHOP HYGIENE

  • You are responsible for cleaning up after each project. Sweeping, wiping down machines, and cleaning off tables shows respect for other members coming in after you.
  • Keep floors free of oil, grease or any other liquid. Please clean up spilled liquids immediately to prevent slipping hazards.
  • Let OSML staff know of spills as soon as possible.
  • Members are responsible for keeping ALL areas clean and free of debris. This is your facility too!
  • All materials should be stored in such a way that they cannot become tripping hazards. Return all excess material to its proper storage place.
  • Stay organized - putting tools away when not in use prevents loss and also makes them available to others.
  • Don't waste - Place all used scrap in marked containers.
  • All work should stop 15 minutes prior to the time you need to leave or before OSML closes for the day. This provides time to clean and replace tools for the next members to use. Members are responsible for cleaning their work areas and replacing tools to their storage location prior to departure.

By checking here, you are consenting to the use of your electronic signature in lieu of an original signature on paper. You have the right to request that you sign a paper copy instead.

No fee will be charged for such copy and no special hardware or software is required to view it. Your agreement to use an electronic signature with us for any documents will continue until such time as you notify us in writing that you no longer wish to use an electronic signature. There is no penalty for withdrawing your consent. You should always make sure that we have a current email address in order to contact you regarding any changes, if necessary.
