Signed Safety Handouts Below is my safety rules handout for the drill press (I also use one for the scroll saw and band saw). Students need to take it home and show their parent/guardian; the student then signs it in front of the parent/guardian, and the parent signs it as a witness. I tell the kids it is not a contract, it is information. They shouldn’t need a contract to hold them to being safe, they should want to do it because it is for their benefit, and going over safety is helpful for that purpose. —Mike Shampanier, Weber Middle School, NY Mr. Shampanier Rm.
