UK Legislation

Whilst in the Hackspace you must abide by all applicable UK laws and legislation. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Health & Safety at Work, etc Act 1974

  • Health Act 2006 - Smoking ban

  • Illegal activity such as bringing or making explosives and offensive weaponry into the Hackspace

  • Mishandling of items covered by the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006

Additionally Nottingham Hackspace will, at times, extend current legislation where we feel it benefits Nottingham Hackspace and its members. For this reason the following rules are in place:

  • Vaping (e.g. use of e-cigarettes) is not permitted inside the space.

  • Sleeping will result in a permanent ban - we have a zero tolerance policy on this. Sleeping in the space jeopardises our lease agreement, breaches fire regulations and is a risk to your personal safety.

  • Safe Spaces (Appendix B) policy must be followed at all times.

Property is left in the Hackspace at the owner’s risk, Nottingham Hackspace accepts no liability for lost or stolen items.
