Safety Contract

Safety is a primary concern in the technology field and its importance will be emphasized in these curses. Many of the tools we use are potentially hazardous if used improperly. Safety is as important to the success of a project as it is to the student’s safety and the safety of other individuals.

It is required that the student follows all the prescribed safety rules and encourages their lab-mates to do the same.

The signature of the student and of a parent or guardian is required at the end of this contract. A signature states that both parties have read, understand, and agree to all of the safety rules and consequences due to infractions.

Safety Rules

All students:

  1. Will wear safety glasses when anyone is working.
  2. Will not use any equipment until the teacher is present and permission is given.
  3. Will report all injuries to the teacher immediately.
  4. Will not leave the classroom for any reason without notifying the teacher.
  5. Will not be tardy to class without a written pass from the office or a teacher.
  6. Will refrain from horseplay at all times during and between classes.
  7. Will operate tools and machines only after receiving proper instruction in their safe use.
  8. Will operate equipment only after passing its safety test with a score of 100%.
  9. Will respect the private property and projects of others.
  10. Will not take or vandalize school property.
  11. Will follow all the safety rules relating to the individual equipment operation.
  12. Will wear solid shoes. No sandals, high heels, etc. will be allowed.

THE CLASSROOM IS INSIDE ROOM 138 ONLY. PERMISSION TO LEAVE THE ROOM MUST BE OBTAINED BEFORE LEAVING FOR ANY REASON.

 

Safety Violation System

This system is in place to ensure the safety of all those in the _____________ and ____________ classes. For each safety infraction, no matter how minor or whether the violation occurred in the labs or in the surrounding area, a safety violation will be noted on the student’s class record. This violation will record the offending student’s name, the date of the incident, the type of incident, and how many violations the student has accumulated. The student will be told of the violation and asked to sign the violation form. If a student accumulates 3 violations, they will no longer be permitted into the lab for the rest of the year. Students will be given alternative assignments outside the lab area. The total possible grade obtainable will not exceed 75%. Continued violations could result in the student’s removal from the class.

 

I have read, understand and agree to the Technology Safety Rules and the Safety Violation System:
