As I keep seeing threads like this, where something happens (argon empty/leads reversed) or a mess being made, and the committee chair has to review hours and hours of video, I begin to wonder if it is time that we require members in all areas to log their usage of the space/equipment.
For instance, a notebook at the entrance of metal shop with sheets where people would write their name, date, and start and end time when they were in the shop, and a summary of tools used and materials and tasks they performed.
This simple step would make it so much easier to identify who is not being excellent, and could really make a difference in ensuring people are accountable for what they’re doing in the space.
If we find the log doesn’t match what people are doing on video, that’s another issue to address. (Like not filling out the log at all)
Even if this was only used in certain areas or for specific tools (like welding area, or plasmacam) it would bring so much visibility and accountability to what’s going on.
