A full safety review of school technical classes has been carried out by Scottish Borders Council.
It followed a serious accident involving a Galashiels Academy pupil after her scarf was caught in a lathe.
Nadine Craig, 14, needed 40 stitches to neck injuries and the Health and Safety Executive ordered a full review of safety procedures in schools.
The investigation has now been completed with a final assessment due to be carried out by the HSE.
The accident took place in November last year during a technical lesson at the school.
Teachers eventually freed the student from the machinery but she required hospital treatment.
It prompted the full safety review and new protection bibs were ordered for all technical classes.
