Safety is a high priority at Hennepin Technical College. Every attempt is made to comply with safety standards. Safety instruction is included in the program curriculum. All students must know the hazards associated with the educational experience and be fully educated on the proper use and operation of any tool before beginning an assignment. Guards must be in place and adjusted to safeguard operators from injury. Tools must be used that will complete a job safely and effectively. Personal protective equipment must be worn and used in designated on-campus and off-campus instructional areas. Safety glasses must be worn in designated on-campus and off-campus instructional areas and any other instructional locations where grinding, chipping, sandblasting, welding, and chemical hazards exist. If you have questions on proper PPE, please consult with your instructor. Minnesota State Law provides that every person shall wear industrial quality eye protection in designated campus areas. Students must purchase their own safety glasses which are available at the campus bookstore. Contact lenses may not be worn in designated areas without the addition of safety glasses. Approved hard hats must be worn in designated on-campus and off-campus instructional areas and in any instructional location where there is a chance of objects falling from above.
