Unlike a private observatory, we operate a public school observatory. And it has to be operated safely for all astronomers and visitors. With the support of a state-approved safety officer who is well-disposed towards us, we are now counteracting various dangers so that nothing can happen. Fire is the biggest threat. Therefore, our service building is equipped with escape routes and fire doors. Now we are adding several fire extinguishers and markings in case of fire. In addition, we also pay attention to mechanical hazards at the large telescope – after all, you can bang your head. For this purpose, there are now several helmet-like padded protective caps, which also look good at the same time. So the safety of our youngsters is taken care of.
