# CTE Resource Center - Verso - Precision Machining Technology I Task 326125412

CTE Resource Center - Verso

Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Pass a safety exam on the topics of shop equipment safety, electrical hazards, and chemical and material handling.


Passing an instructor-designed or approved safety assessment must
  • measure participation in safety training programs, including attending safety meetings
  • validate the completion of periodic demonstrations of knowledge and skills gained from safety topics (e.g., interpretation of safety data sheets).
Instructors typically demand a passing score of 100 percent for materials handling and equipment, tool, and machine use.

Process/Skill Questions

  • What is the main difference between a class A and Class B fires?
  • If there is a yellow line on the floor around a machine, what does it mean?
  • What does the SDS acronym mean to machining shop safety?
