It is the middle of week 6 of the 2020 build season.

As a team, safety is number one priority. We want to make sure that any students, mentors, and people we reach are being safe. Today we asked some members, "Why is safety so important in FIRST, and what do you do to stay safe?"

"It is important so we don't get hurt. We always wear safety glasses when working and we make sure that we have mentors nearby when we use power tools. We also do not wear loose clothing when building."

"It is important because it prevents us from getting hurt. To stay safe we always wear safety glasses, we watch our surrounding when working, and we always stay focused."

"Safety is super important to not get hurt and to not hurt anyone else. To stay safe when building, we use clamps, we make sure all of our tools are in order and are working before we use them, and we make sure all machines have guards. We will also sometimes use earplugs if it is necessary."

As stated before, safety is super important, and this is a friendly remimder to stay safe!

We want to know how you guys stay safe, so feel free to let us know. Also, don't forget to check out our weekly newsletter Youtube videos for even more updates.
