    1. Wear a safety equipment - hard hat, safety equipment, and a reflective vest in appropriate areas.
    2. Do not wear loose clothing around rotating machinery.
    3. Stay clear of moving vehicles - you can see them, can they see you.
    4. Be aware of the location of designated safety stations
    5. Lock down equipment when doing any repair, and use the lock down tags.
    6. If any machine is designated with a lock down, do not attempt to power up the machine, unless everyone is clear and you are authorized to do so.
    7. etc
