Electronics Shop Safety

See basic shop rules and basic E&R rules.

General Rules

  • Classroom and Asylum events take precedence over projects.
  • Do not leave projects unlabeled - unlabeled things will be put in the Drift Bin.
  • One table to a person when working on a project - don't spread out unless absolutely necessary.
  • Do not remove parts drawers; only take what you need.
  • Clean up after yourself; put tools back in their correct places.
  • Do not remove multimeters, oscilloscopes, signal generators, etc. without permission from shop leads.
