Polimoda is extremely attentive regarding the is­sue of the personal safety of all those who frequent its premises. The buildings, lecture rooms and equip­ment used are designed and/or acquired fully re­specting the legal regulations in force. But everyone’s safety depends also on the behaviour and attitude of persons using the buildings.

The sections that follow are therefore intended to provide useful information regarding the measures to be taken to ensure your own safety and that of others while inside the Institute.

The laboratories are equipped mainly with sewing machines, knitting machines and ironing presses all of which have extremely low residual risk factors. However, they should be used with due care, always referring to the instructions for use and maintenance given in the relevant booklet, and following the in­structions given by the teacher and the school’s sup­port staff. All breakdowns or irregularities should be reported to the teacher or staff immediately.
