Safety in the Workshop: Avoiding Accidents and Injuries

Going inside a professional and very busy woodshop, this program shows how to prevent a wide range of carpentry-related hazards. An overview of basic safety measures focuses on the need for face masks, respirators, steel-toed shoes, and eye, ear, and hair protection. Safety zones, proper tool storage, flammable liquid storage, and overall cleanliness and organization are also emphasized. Advice on tool sharpening and maintenance leads to detailed safety demonstrations for various hand and power tools, both portable and stationary. Finally, students receive a valuable look at basic first aid and what to do in case of an accident. Correlates to all National CTE Organizational Standards (including the provisions of the Perkins Act). (22 minutes)
