Shed Colour Coding for Machine Use
The management committee decided on 30 January, 2018, that we would change the system of colour coding which allows use of the various machinery and some power tools in the Shed.
The new system will place a coloured sticker on your name tag to indicate which group of machines you are qualified to use.
The machines also have the equivalent colour marked on them. You will therefore need to wear your name tag to be able to use any
