Abstract: Manufacturing is a key tool in the aspect of engineering as well as development. It is the process were by designed products are converted into physical/solid component, with the aid of hand and machine tools. The production processes are mostly carried out in the work shop. During this processes, manufacturers or machine operators are faced with a lot of hazards, due to the direct or indirect contact with the work pieces or machine tools. This paper intends to review some basic precautionary measures and formulate them into DOs and DONTs which if obeyed can eliminate or minimize this risk, and to serve as an orientation paper to technical students who may have the course to perform practical /training in the manufacturing workshop. The DOs and DONTs as well as the negative consequences (implications) were highlighted under four topics (Mental and physical acuity of worker, protective equipment and clothing, state of the workshop and environs, and operations / working habits).
