Safety First

The first several weeks of class are spent learning about proper safety procedures in the Metal Shop. Students will take and pass a written safety test and will also need to demonstrate proper safety procedures.

Table Engineers

Each table has a designated Table Engineer, who keeps a lookout for solid safety procedures being followed. This student reports to the teacher and also helps manage tools. The Table Engineer is an important part of maintaining a safe shop.

Safety Quote of the Day

To make sure students always put safety first, we start each class period discussing an important safety quote. Students record these quotes in their safety journals and spend a few minutes discussing the importance of safety.
