In the previous post on teaching students about shop safety, we discussed how to reinforce safety practices around vehicle lifts. But do your students know what to do in the event of an accident, injury, or emergency?
It’s not the most exciting subject in the automotive classroom, but it’s certainly one of the most important. Even if your students aren’t eagerly awaiting your lesson on how to use eye protection or the importance of inspecting equipment, you know how necessary it is for students to absorb and follow safety guidelines. All it takes is one accident to ruin a person’s day, week, or even their entire life, which means skimping on teaching safety is not an option.
