Safety Rules and Measures:
It is extremely important to follow the safety guidelines before you start and during the lab sessions. Some of the rules and measures that you must take are listed below.
- Wear safety glasses.
- Remove watches, jewelry, rings, and ties.
- If you have a long hair, you must tie it up or put it in a cap.
- Avoid loose clothes, and remove jackets.
- Wear short sleeves, or properly rolled-up long sleeves.
- Wear heavy duty shoes.
- Make sure the floor is dry before you start and stays dry during the lab session. Never start your lab session if the floor is wet or greasy.
- Familiarize yourself with the location of the emergency stop buttons before you start your lab session.
- Perform proper Lockout/Tagout procedures, and inform other students around you and your group members, if you are working in a group, before you plug in or operate, or turn on an electrical equipment.
