Tie it back campaign
In 2018, our team created a campaign to help prevent injuries caused by loose clothing or hair. We provide bright blue hair ties with our team name on them at our pit for anyone who may need one and we post fliers throughout the venue to let people know where they can find a hair tie.
Throughout the season our team hosts several safety training sessions to ensure our team is prepared for any safety related emergency and as safe as can be. Some of these trainings include epipen and allergy training, safe lifting training taught by a physical therapist, how to use a fire extinguisher demo and training, compressed air safety, diabetic shock training along with many more.
We do everything we can to prevent injury and unsafe working environments, including making fliers for our team members with basic safety tips and reminders.
PWNAGE team members are trained by a mentor on how to use any tools or machines. Just in case a student forgets an important safety feature we have magnetic cards on each of the machines around the shop to remind students of these important safety features.
