Inductions and Access MSD

The Maker Spaces are advanced facilities that require University of Melbourne students and staff to undergo training and safety inductions before they can access the services and facilities. Safe usage of the facilities is a top priority, and most services require at least some specialised knowledge to engage with effectively.
