Fire Extinguishers If there is a fire, let the teacher know and only use a fire extinguisher if the need arises. Do not attempt to put out a fire by yourself! Never use a Co2 fire extinguisher on a person, use a fire blanket.

A Clean Shop Is A Safe Shop The last 8-10 minutes of each class is designated for clean up. Clean and put the tools away first, label your project, sweep off/clean your work area/vehicle (turned off!), and then sweep the floor or pick up any debris. Failure to clean up will result in loss of shop time.
Protect the Hands! • Metal can be sharp... So use a brush and pan!
