Internal Safety Procedures: The internal document for members of the safety team. Establishes guidelines for safety team members for handling crisis situations. At least two safety team members were stationed in the Sanctuary Room during the conference from 9am-2am. This document details how to report incidents to the main three safety leads via a private Google form, as well as how to report any actions taken via another form. All members of the safety team were trained using this document before the conference.
