Subject: [T-104] Fwd: Use of tools on projects
Members of Troop 104,I thought that you'd all benefit from hearing the rules for use of tools on service projects. I'm sure that a few of our older scouts will have Eagle Service Projects in the newer future, and all of you will be invited to help!As a reminder, there is no weekly meeting this evening. Enjoy the rest of your Memorial Day (I know I did!) and we'll see you next week. As a reminder, our family picnic is Saturday June 9, and our last Court of Honor for the school year is Monday June 11th.Troop 104Begin forwarded message:From: Watchung Mountain Advancement <wmadvancement@...>Subject: Use of tools on projectsDate: May 27, 2012 11:02:06 AM EDTTo: Undisclosed-recipients: <>;Dear Scout Leader:We have gotten a few questions of late related to youth service projects, Eagle Scout projects and general tool and equipment use on the projects. Please note that unit, district or council service projects, including Eagle Scout projects constitute official Scouting activity and are thus subject to Boy Scouts of America policies and procedures. They are considered part of a unit’s program and are treated as such with regard to policies, procedures and requirements regarding youth protection, leadership, and so forth. As with any Scouting activity, the Guide to Safe Scouting applies. Unit leadership should be aware of project plans and schedules.Please keep in mind...Hazardous jobs and certain tool and equipment use must be limited to adults at least 18 years old. They must have experience with the tasks or tools, and be recruited to do the work involved. Those under 18 may not work at heights or on ladders, drive, operate machinery and powered construction equipment, or use power tools such as chainsaws, band saws, metalworking presses, and table saws.
