GENERAL SAFETY Make sure to read all safety information thoroughly before using the shop. NEVER work alone. Always make sure there is at least one other person in the shop with you at all times. BEFORE using the shop, you must fill out and sign the Manufacturing Lab Procedures and Policies sheet and have Mr. Kevin Amende review and sign as well. This ensures that you have taken previous classes that instructe you on how to use the shop machines. Anyone without a properly filled out and signed sheet will not be permitted to use any machines.Manufacturing Lab Procedures and Policies In the instance that a student does not have this sheet and/or the required classes, they will be permitted to use hand tools only.

Keep chips swept up Do not place measuring tools on the machines Report all breakages
General Safety Chemical Safety: There are several bright yellow cabinets marked with CAUTION signs as containing potentially hazardous chemicals. Take extreme caution when using. Make sure to clean up all spills properly, wash hands after each use and beware of fire hazards, eye and skin irritation, etc. DO NOT mix fluids unless properly instructed.
