Three things I will do to stay safe at work are to make sure I get sufficient training to learn how to do my job properly and safely no matter what the job is, I will not accept unsafe work especially without training or supervision because with the stories we looked at they were left unsupervised and that was when they got injured. I will also ask questions to my employer during training and later on and/or ask for help whenever I need it, plus make sure that I report every injury no matter how small. Two things I will do to keep others safe in the workplace are to make sure that they have supervision and are checked on regularly, and show them how to do their job correctly and safely and make sure they go through the correct training. The story that stood out to me the most was definitely the one we heard about in class with Mark. His story about working a late night without anyone near him started out sort of boring because I thought that he was just going to talk about normal safety in the workplace and laws, rights etc. But when he got to his own story it got much more interesting and scary. He didn’t turn off the machine before he went to shovel wood chips, he accidentally dropped some of them between two conveyor belts and used his left hand to try and grab them. His arm got caught in the conveyor belt and wrapped back around him, completely breaking and paralyzing his arm. He waited for hours bleeding out and dying before he was rushed to hospital. The whole story stood out to me mostly because of how traumatizing it was. I put myself in his shoes and it was awful, I can’t truly imagine what it was like. I don’t know if he meant to start out like a boring presentation and end it with a bang, but if he did, it was very smart and got our attention.
The 3 post-secondary schools that I was most interested in were Langara because of their arts and science programs, I also liked Capilano college because of their theatre arts programs like becoming a director or set designer, I thought that the University of Manitoba was great too because they had great architecture and science programs. If I was going to post-secondary school today, I think I would go to Langara because they are close and have an arts sciences program I am interested in. I think that seeing colleges and universities before you hit grade 12 is important because it helps you decide what you want to be and where you want to go. I thought that just talking to all of the university and college representatives was the best part for me because I got to see how they all differ and are the same, helping me choose where to go for an education.
Every day before school I will make my bed and clean my room after school. I will do this until the end of the school year in June. I will wake up earlier to make my bed and still have enough time to get ready, set alarms, and clean my room when I get home or before bed. I will ask my parents to remind me if I happen to forget.If I forget to do it one day I will set alarms to do it, and go to bed earlier so I can wake up and make my bed without being too tired.
Once I get my report card, I want to see that I have at least 80% in each of my classes in both semesters of the school year.I will do all my homework on time and ask questions in class as well as be engaged in all of our work and projects. I will ask the teacher for help and ask my parents or teacher for help with homework. If I have many big projects at the same time, I will put other things aside and work on those. When finals come along, I will make the time to study for each test.
