Part 1. Safety Equipment and Practices Requirements

Minneapolis College is committed to maintaining all appropriate and legal safety practices that apply to classroom, instructional, and student employment practices. Faculty will provide students with safety requirement information in the course syllabus, Student Handbook, or Program policies statements.

Students must adhere to safety requirements provided by instructors, laboratory employees, and/or supervisors. Supervisors will provide student employees with information about safety requirements and practices. Failure to comply with Minneapolis College safety requirements and practices, including those provided by instructors in the process of carrying out instructional programs, constitutes a violation of the Student Code of Conduct (see College Policy 4.04 and Procedure 4.04.01), and in some instances MN Statutes. Sanctions, including removal from the classroom or course, may result.

All Minneapolis College students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with, as well as to conform to, College safety rules and regulations.

Part 3. Safety Practices
