Safety is a high priority at Hennepin Technical College. Every attempt is made to comply with safety standards. Safety instruction is included in all 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. Machine guards must be in place and adjusted to safeguard operators from injury. The proper tools must be used to complete a job safely and effectively.
Personal protective equipment (PPE) must be worn and used in designated on-campus and off-campus instructional areas. Protective eyewear must be worn in designated on-campus and off-campus instructional areas and any other locations where grinding, chipping, sandblasting, welding, and/or 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 areas. Students must purchase their own protective eyewear, which is 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 location where there is a chance of objects falling from above.
