General Shop Policies:

  • All work sessions must be scheduled through the Technical Advisor’s office. Failure to do so will result in denial of use. Repeated failure may result denial of any future use.
  • Unsupervised work is not allowed.
  • Plans and projects must be approved by the Technical Advisor before work can begin.
  • It is expected that safety goggles and appropriate hearing protection will be worn when working with any kind of power equipment.
  • If you are not thoroughly familiar with the operation of a piece of equipment obtain the necessary instruction from the Shop Supervisor or other qualified person before proceeding.
  • All tools are to be returned to their proper storage area at the end of a work session. Clean up at the end of  each work session. This includes: disposing of scrap lumber and materials, returning unused material and stock to its proper storage area, and sweeping the floor. All trash must be taken to the compactor daily. The last 15-30 min. of each work session will be devoted to clean-up, so allow for it (even if you plan to return the same day).
  • No tools are to leave the shop without the permission of the Technical Advisor or Shop Supervisor. All tools must be signed out and inspected upon return. Lost tools must be replaced by the group responsible.
  • Report any damage or breakage of equipment to the Technical Advisor or Shop Supervisor immediately upon discovery. By doing so, the item can be repaired or replaced quickly without interfering with the work of everyone using the shop.
  • Groups must clean up all areas and materials used for painting at the end of the work session. This includes brushes, rollers, buckets and unused paint. All unused paint must be disposed of or stored properly.
