Motivation for Safety Plan
The safety plan was developed by the senior design team in order to ensure a safe working environment for the shop. There are a lot of dangerous tools and machines as well as a large car on jacks in the shop so a clearly defined safety plan is paramount to creating a safe environment. This plan is designed to be a flow chart where whoever is entering the shop can confirm at each level that they are able to enter. This includes complying with department regulations as well as a few rules that the seniors felt were important. This had to do with clutter in the shop, phones in the shop and loose clothing. It is also important to note that each senior must be individually cleared by a technician in order to use any power tools, so this safety plan only applies to hand tools in the shop.
