Lab Safety

The health and safety of NPC students is of primary concern whether on campus or attending high school sponsored activities. Policies, procedures, and guidelines pertaining to health and safety must be followed for the protection of all. Students are required to adhere to all safety procedures and utilize safety and protective equipment in all lab settings. Eye protection will be worn while operating machinery. Appropriate attire is required in shop areas.

In the event of an accident or minor medical requirements, first aid supplies are available in each lab area, administration, student services and the student center.

These procedures will be followed:

  • At the occurrence of an accident, the student will notify the instructor or responsible staff member immediately;
  • For the safety of all, minor cuts or abrasions must be given proper medical attention;
  • An accident report must be completed and turned in to the administration office.

Safety instruction is included in all lab areas. Students are to observe all policies and regulations pertaining to safety throughout the campus. If it is necessary to transport a student to a medical facility and an ambulance is not required, the student will be taken by designated NPC personnel.
