My Graduation Requirements

On your blog, you will do a post demonstrating your understanding of the requirements for graduation.
Replace the blank lines (with instructions) with the appropriate information.
You can use the PowerPoint and document I showed you earlier in the semester to find this information. It is in the password area of the blog.
Reminder: Course credits are only earned on classes that are Grade 10 level and up. You only earn credits if you pass the course.

Workplace Safety

Three things I will do to stay safe at work is, ask questions if I don’t know something. If the workplace is unsafe then inform my employer/ supervisor and stay away from unmarked chemicals. Two things I will do to keep others safe is help them with anything their unsure about and keep the workplace safe and clean

Mattew’s story resonates with me the most but my dad is a chef and I couldn’t imagine him having a serious accident at work. I learn that every has the right to safe work and not to be afraid of speaking up and hopefully prevent a injury for you or another coworker
