Vincent Men’s Shed Safety Grant

Members’ safety is a top priority here at Vincent Men’s Shed and we are always looking for ways make the Shed a great place to get together and safely work on a wide range of projects. Our latest safety initiative is to have all our Day Managers undertake a St John of God one-day first aid training course.

VMS new tag on system

Vincent Men’s Shed has a new tag on system. The system is used to member entry and exit of the shed, and allows us to get a better understanding of how our members use the shed.

Watch the how to video on YouTube: https://youtu.be/naAWzUxNY_M

How it works: Find your name tag when you arrive and tap against the card reader. Check the on screen message to ensure it says ‘Tag On Success’. Tag again, to see the ‘Goodbye’ message when you leave. Don’t forget to hang your name tag back on the board before you leave.

If your tag is not recognised by the system you will receive a message saying please see the day manager.
