Our first day of class was reviewing the safety rules and procedures for the entire school curriculum. As you can imagine with over 180 new students using power and hand tools safety has to be an important part of the training we will receive.
Each student must complete the safety test. This test is 200 questions covering all safety issues. Since it is an open book test the 50 page companion Safety manual will guide us through each power tool. It is a lot common sense tied to specific rules for each tool. A grade of 90% is required before a student can move forward with tool demonstration and tool use.
A list is given below on some of the equipment covered on the exam and manual.
Power Miter box
Radial Arm Saw
Overarm pin Router
Edge Belt Sander
Horizontal Boring Machine
Hollow Chisel Mortiser
