For safety and comfort in all working areas one must make sure that the area:
- is orderly, which makes it easy to find tools and materials
- is well lit, with no or few shadows making it easy to see what you are doing
- has enough power points so that you don't trip over power cords on the floor
- is suitably protected against fire (have a little fire extinguisher handy) and
- has a first aid kit, just in case!
