Shop Safety-Environmental Health & Safety - Carnegie Mellon University

Shop Safety

Shops are vitally important to the successful operation of many of our departments on campus.  They also serve as teaching tools and places for students to complete projects.  Whether they are wood shops, metal shops, robotic shops, or any other type of shop, they all present their own kinds of hazards, and it is important that shop users know how to deal with the potential hazards that may be found in the shop environment.

A list of general shop rules and guidelines has been developed and posted in all student shops.  If you know of any student shop that does not have this poster, please contact EH&S at 8-8182 to obtain a copy.  An online student shop safety training program is also available.  To take this course, click on the Training tab and follow the menu.

Guidelines for specific pieces of shop equipment are being developed and will be posted here as they become available.  If you have a specific piece of equipment that you would like to see addressed, call us at 8-8182.
