The Maker Code of Conduct

The Nest aims to provide access to a wide range of useful and well-maintained equipment, as well as project space. It is designed to be a safe and secure learning environment for all users and visitors.

The OWHL and the Nest expects users and visitors to respect the rights of others, the integrity of the Nest resources, and the inclusive community mission of the Nest. Behaviors that infringe upon the well-being, learning, and rights of other OWHL or Nest users or staff are prohibited and may result in disciplinary action.

  • Safety is important. If you are unsure of how to safely do something, stop and ask for help.
  • Report any and all injuries.
  • Report any broken machines or tools.
  • Clean, maintain, organize, improve. Always leave the space better than you found it.
  • Comply with all posted signs, documentation, and training.
  • Use only materials that are approved for the equipment or tools.
  • No food or drink at any machines.
  • Tools/resources must stay in the Nest so that others may use them.
  • Return tools to their proper place when you are finished.
  • Collaboration is important. Don’t merely respect each other; be excellent to each other.
  • Be curious. Ask questions.
  • Have fun!
