This year, Team 2172 has been making an effort to strengthen our safety protocols. Everyone has been taking steps to make our robotics team a safer place, not only with the tools but also with a more welcoming and kind community.

This year, to encourage safety, we made every member on the team a pouch to hold their safety glasses at competitions. Each person’s pouch has their name embroidered onto it; for anyone who wears glasses, the pouch is larger to fit the appropriate safety glasses to ensure inclusivity. Not only is this a fun way to welcome everyone to the team, but it also encourages people to wear their safety glasses.
All members of our team are required to take five different FIRST safety courses from this website. After each course is completed, the team member is required to take a test on the material learned. These courses make sure that everyone is well-versed in lab safety.
