Welcome students of the OCDSB school Board. This site was designed in order to help you understand the importance of safety regulation in a shop environment. Please take the time to review the notes found under each tag in order to fully understand the functioning and proper operating procedures of each machine. 

This site will also contain various rules and regulation in regards to shop safety. These are not your notes and should not be granted as being your sole source of information. Only a qualified instructor can truly teach you how to safely operate any machinery.  Attendance throughout all of the safety lessons is crucial in order to fully understand the proper techniques to be used for each machine.

Safety is an ongoing part of your technological education. It's important to apply all that your teacher will teach you in regards to safety and how to safely operate any machinery throughout the course of this school year and throughout your lifetime.
