Do you know how to easily test your soldering ventilation? Which chemicals in your studio are incompatible with each other and how do you store them correctly? Is your flux the safest one to use? Why should you never light a torch with a disposable lighter? Do you have an eyewash? Fire extinguisher? Enough light? Are you disposing of your used pickle safely? Come learn the answers to all these questions, and help keep yourself and your studio safe!
There will be time at the end of this lecture-style slide presentation for additional questions.
