    1.1 This outline covers Additive Manufacturing (AM) facility safety management. It addresses the various hazards associated with material, equipment and facility where parts are manufactured using powder-based additive manufacturing techniques. It covers the potential hazards and risk mitigation measures required for the safe functioning of the facility. These foreseeable hazards include, but are not limited to, fire and explosion, toxic exposure and other workplace hazards. This outline of investigation also includes recommendations for the design, installation and maintenance of additive manufacturing facilities (powder based).

    1.2 This outline covers the physical space belonging to the primary AM equipment, ancillary AM equipment and powder storage area unless otherwise specified. In order to fully address the potential hazards, the outline adopts the approach as represented in Figure 1.1.
