Safety in FIRST

Build season has started! That means lots of excitement, and it also means lots of opportunities to keep yourself and your teammates safe. We have our Winner and Runners-Up for the 2019 Safety Animation Award sponsored by UL! The winning entry was from FIRST Robotics Competition Team 5348, Charger Robotics, from Cokato, Minnesota, USA.

A huge congratulations to our winner and runners-up! Great animations this year! To all FRC teams – please make safety part of your life every day. We’ve said it a hundred times, and we’ll say it again – nothing you are doing in FIRST is worth getting hurt over.
