Hey all, we’ve made good progress on the safety side of things. @Big_Mak is going to see about getting our fire extinguishers re-certified, and I went through the first aid kits and divided them by area, so we have three in our major zones. (wood shop, metal shop and main area)
However, we need to talk about other basic infra things like the bathrooms and the bucket of soiled towels sitting next to it.
Our current (backlogged) system was to have the cotton towels as hand towels, but also use them for cleaning and spills. dirty towels would be collected in the bucket. Well, now that bucket is full and we’ve run out of clean towels. There are also a huge pile of gloves that are filthy with who knows what that need to be laundered.
If we’re going to continue using these towels we need to implement a system for doing laundry. Whether this is a Do-ocracy thing with reimbursed expenses, or it goes to someone who has a washer and dryer at home, I don’t know. But we can’t just have a bathroom with disgusting towels.
We could potentially forsake the whole idea of laundered towels in the bathroom and switch to a roll of brown paper towel, or somehow try to get an electric hand dryer going.
How to move forward?
- Figure out a system for doing laundry - and do it!
- Switch to rolls of brown paper towels - and empty garbage cans
- Try to install electric hand dryers in our wiring mess
