Safety Training For Machine Shops Resources

All personnel that works within a machinery shop must complete the annual shop safety training and the annual Housekeeping on the Job courses to ensure safety protocols are adhered to in their work area.  They also need to be informed of actions to be taken to protect themselves during normal operations and emergency situations.  Training topics include personnel roles & responsibilities, hazards, control, safe Work practices.
