Help The Space
Help So Make It
The space has a number of odd jobs that need doing regularly. As well as the basic responsibilities of keeping the space clean, and making sure the kitchen area is kept in a hygienic state, the following tasks are always useful.
Rotate the Junk Shelf’s Our space is limited, and we get a good flow of junk donated. Unfortunately, not all it is will be used, and other things will be stripped bare. Help the space by looking at the junk, and taking any clearly rubbish items away with you. The more rubbish that members can recylcle or dispose of themselves will reduce the financial burden of waste clearance from the space.
Clear the Outside Drain Outside the roller shutter is a drain. It fills with mud. Access to the mud can be gained by listing the grating (The workshop has tools that will help). Scoop out the mud, and let rain water flow freely to its deep slumber in the drainage system.
Move cash into the bank So make it has a number of cash boxes in the space. We have a bank account, details available in the members area, which the cash from those cash boxes is paid into. Any one can move money from the cash boxes to the bank account, note, that handling cash for the space is an important task, and removal of cash without paying it into the bank is theft. If you wish yo count cash and pay it into the bank, use this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSc7Pwfkj5Qa7I6PVEo-CpV-AeyDGRF1-LzA3gM9WuxjDsWwFA/viewform when removing the funds form the space. This will enable us to see who has collected funds, and find it on the bank statement. If the amount you pay into the bank differs from the amount collected (Say, if you added your membership fee on top) then please let the treasurer know. Also, please, leave a little float in the boxes (A pound or two) so that people are able to get change, especially from the tuck shop.
Perform Admin To be legal, there is a lot of admin work that needs to be completed. One of our large ongoing tasks is HSE compliance, which means making sure tools are safely maintained, that risk assessment have been performed, and the documentation of their use (Manufacturers manuals, not training guides) are available for members. All our risk assessments are stored in GitHub, in our operations repo https://github.com/somakeit/operations.
If you wish to help, please check out the heath and safety / risk assessments directory in the repo, and add any that you think are missing. We also link the relevant risk assessments to the repo pages for the relevant tools.
