Enforcement of rules

All members are empowered to enforce these rules. If a member observes a fellow member or a guest breaking the rules they should follow the following escalation procedure:

  • Politely remind the person that there are new rules they need to follow.
  • If the person refuses, politely remind them that all members are empowered to enforce these rules.
  • If the person still refuses, contact any board officer and report the member. Please note the date/time you observed the behavior. If the person becomes belligerent or argumentative please do not engage further, simply disengage and contact a board member or area lead, we will take steps to address the infraction.
  • Penalty for anyone refusing to follow rules will vary depending on the severity and frequency of the infractions. However, refusal can result in punishment up to and including permanent expulsion from the Chatt*Lab Makerspace if necessary.
