Makerspaces are communal workspaces that make various tools and machinery available to their participants. Makerspaces are becoming a popular and highly advantageous way to foster innovation for companies that create products.
But what are the health and safety issues that can come up in such workspaces? What about people who may be working close to unfamiliar machinery or chemicals? Our blog will give you answers to these questions.

Understanding Your Lease and Health and Safety Obligations Before Moving to a Coworking Office
Coworking spaces are a new and popular option for companies seeking flexible working arrangements, offering coffee, collaborative spaces, shared desks, private offices, kitchens, and meeting rooms at affordable prices. But who is responsible for health and safety elements such as emergency response drills, first aid kits, and evacuation maps? What if safety incidents occur?
The introduction of the ISO 45001 standard has put a renewed emphasis on written health and safety programs, and while not all organizations pursue certification, many are basing their approach on this model.
Antea Group’s blog has the guidelines on how you can develop a written health and safety plan that is effective and can be practically implemented for your organization.
