A wide variety of manual tools, power tools and machinery are essential for the support and operation of Yale University. These devices are used on a daily basis by employees in shops, maintenance and repair facilities, laboratories and on buildings and building systems. Tools and machines are also used in academic and extracurricular activities because shop and fabrication activities play an important role in the education of many Yale students in the arts, sciences and engineering. Environmental Health and Safety can assist in evaluating the potential hazards associated with this equipment as well as provide training and other support for shop and tool use.
