All students are expected to know, understand, and follow shop safety rules, as well as to maintain an orderly and clean work area. Individual shop safety rules are posted and must be followed according to industry standards. Safety violations are subject to district discipline, including possible dismissal from a program. The following safety regulation, adopted from industry standards found on the job is observed: Eye Safety — if you are involved in a program of hazardous nature (per WISHA code), you must wear appropriate industry quality eye protective devices as designated.
