Hack Safely: Fire Safety in the Home Shop – Hackaday

With a more industrial age upon us, the world is filled with people who want to make better instruments and methods to handle our lives more easily. This is called hacking, and a lot of people who do this can get caught up in their work. One of the main risks with working with high voltage, open flames, and volatile substances on a frequent basis is that of a fire. The most important thing is to be aware of your surroundings and install smoke detectors. You should also know what fire extinguisher to use and how to use it.

Key Takeaways:

  • You need to do a safety audit of your workspace on a regular basis.
  • Make sure your shop is covered by at least one working smoke detector.
  • You’re also going to need to know how to use a fire extinguisher.

“When you’re in the zone on a build, you may not notice the stray datasheet that fell across your soldering station, or the fact that you’ve plugged one too many instruments into that power strip.”
