If you are not sure what you are doing- Stop! Look! Listen! There is no discredit in being ignorant, but there is in being foolish.
At no time should tools or other materials be left lying on the floor. Use all tools and equipment as instructed. Take better care of them than you do your own. Always keep your hands in a safe position when working. Do not even trust yourself. Never carry tools in your pockets.

Keep all isles and work areas clear. Report all damaged tools or equipment to your instructor immediately. Safety glasses must be worn at all times. Report all accidents and injuries to your instructor.
Do not leave the shop area at any time without the permission of your instructor. The correct way is the only safe way. Stop! Think! Proceed carefully! Safety is no accident!
