clean the shop at closing time twice per semester. When the student whose assigned day it is asks you to clean up, be courteous and help them to do so.

->Shop cleanup starts one half hour before closing time
. At that time, stop working on your project and start cleaning up. Help the person who is responsible for cleaning sign-off, don't just make them do it all.

->If you are staying later under staff supervision, you are assuming responsibility for shop cleaning. Give your name to

Properly storing materials is an issue of safety, security and community.  Safety to prevent people from hurting themselves or projects. Security because we are not alone in this building or this city. And community because we all need to use an area with limited space.  Here are some guidelines for keeping stuff in the shop. 

->''''NO FOOD OR DRINK IS ALLOWED IN ANY SHOP AREAS!!!!'''' This includes being stored back there.

->''''USE THE RIGHT COLOR TAPE WITH CONTACT INFORMATION''''  Label everyting you are going to store here with the '''YELLOW''' gaffer's tape, available chained to the short red tool cabinet. Anything with last year's '''ORANGE''' tape, or anything unlabeled, will be thrown out or is up for grabs. Please include your name, email, and a number we can reach you at.

->''''STORE IT IN THE RIGHT PLACE''''
*The rolling storage racks are available for student storage. You may bring in containers other than a blue bin if there aren't any available, but please try to limit yourself to the area occupied by a single bin.
*There is vertical storage in the corner of the shop for large sheets of material. Please check there for any abandoned materials before you bring in anything new.
*Never block an exit or the flow of traffic.

->''''THROW IT AWAY IN THE RIGHT PLACE'''' There are marked HAZMAT containers, a junk shelf, a dumpster, bins for scrap wood...

* '''PAY ATTENTION''' to what you've got, and where you put it.

* '''TAKE TIME''' when setting up and cleaning up to note everything you took out of your bin, and are putting back.  Write it down if you're forgetful.

* '''USE YOUR LOCKER''' if it's valuable.

* '''WATCH OUT FOR EACH OTHER'''. Take note of what your classmates are doing when you're in the lab together.  Talk to each other.  Sometimes the simple act of conversation helps you remember what someone else was doing when you talked, and you can help them remember what they misplaced.

* '''TAKE THINGS HOME''' if you're not using them. There is limited storage space, so ''''please store only what's absolutely necessary'''' for projects you're currently working on. Anyone taking more space than is appropriate will be asked to clear off space for others.  This means ALL projects, cardboard, etc. which you've already shown in class, or won't touch until the end of the semester.

We'll be holding these every weekday for the first three weeks of the semester. There will be a sign-up sheet for these sessions on the whiteboard nearest the power tool in the shop. We can accommodate up to 12 people per session, so please sign up in advance. If you're using the shop and we know you haven't attended a safety session, you will have to stop working.

!!!Safety Sessions

ALL STUDENTS MUST ATTEND A SAFETY SEMINAR ONCE A YEAR AND TAKE THE SAFETY QUIZ IN ORDER TO USE THE SHOP. This is required by law.

To repeat, this mean every person who plans to use the shop is required by law to attend a safety session, including first, second and whatever-year ITP students and outside students as well. We'll be holding these every weekday for the first three weeks of the semester. There will be a sign-up sheet for these sessions on the whiteboard nearest the power tool in the shop. We can accommodate up to 12 people per session, so please sign up in advance. If you're using the shop and we know you haven't attended a safety session, you will have to stop working.

!!!ITP Safety Rules

!!Clean Up
All shop users are expected to work two cleanup days per semester, and to help clean the shop when they use it. 

Show up at 11 PM to clean the power tool shop. Activity in the main shop should be wrapping up by 11:30, so that people working in there can help you clean up.  So with any luck, you can be out by 11:45. [[Cleanup | Read here for the details]]

The shop is open to the general ITP community, and when no one is there, all equipment should be put away and the shop left neat. If you are the only person in the shop and you leave, put all tools away whether you took them out or not, and clean up.

When you are finished with a tool, put it away and clean up your area. This includes soldering irons, soldering aids, all hand tools, and any mess made by your tool.

Students using the shop are assigned to clean the shop at closing time twice per semester. When the student whose assigned day it is asks you to clean up, be courteous and help them to do so.

Shop cleanup starts one half hour before closing time. At that time, stop working on your project and start cleaning up. Help the person who is responsible for cleaning sign-off, don't just make them do it all.

If you are staying later under staff supervision, you are assuming responsibility for shop cleaning. Give your name to the person who is assigned to cleaning that night so they can pass it on to Tom and the physical computing resident team.

If the shop is messy in the morning and you were responsible for cleaning the night before, it will affect your shop priveleges.

!!!Storage

The rolling storage racks are available for student storage. If you store anything on the shelves, please label it with your name, email, and a number we can reach you at. Use the '''YELLOW''' gaffer's tape, available in the tape drawer. Anything with last year's '''ORANGE''' tape, or anything unlabeled, will be thrown out.

There is limited storage space, so please store only what's absolutely necessary for projects you're currently working on. Anyone taking more space than is appropriate will be asked to clear off space for others.

The shelves are cleared off every semester, so please take things home when you're done with them to save yourself a big load at the end.
