Tool Safety

COVID-19 outbreak: The current Omicron wave is concerning but for now our task programme continues to run in line with government guidance for Beyond Level 0 (as updated on 2021-11-16) As outdoor activities our tasks are relatively safe but use of the minibus is potentially risky. Therefore we request that all volunteers who are using the minibus to attend tasks should take a lateral flow test on the morning of the task, hopefully catching any cases before they cause an issue. Additional measures may well be announced by the government over the coming days and weeks; should these affect LCV's activities we will inform volunteers.

On a happier note, our exciting task programme for Q1 2022 is now available. We hope to see you on task soon.

The same general safety principles apply to all the tools that LCV uses:

Carrying Tools

You should always carry tools

Don't overload yourself or others.

Choosing Tools

When choosing a tool, make sure

Using Tools

When using a tool, make sure

Storing Tools

If you are not using a tool, make sure
