Hope youre doing well. This is the final week of home learning for the 2019-2020 school year.
This weeks topic will be safety. I know most of you have picked up some part time jobs or will be starting part time jobs in the near future. It is very important for you to be careful while at work. I would like you to watch the following video about young workers. Some of the images may be grafic or gross but remember it is a dramitization of real events. Accidents can happen and it is important to be careful and ask for training if you are unsure how to do your work duties properly and safely.
After watching the video I would like you to answer the questions attached and make a list of your duties at work and what type of PPE must be worn during those tasks. Some of your jobs may require more PPE than others.
Here is the video

3.Who were the injured in this video?
4.What could have been done to prevent all of these accidents?

Hope you all had a great long weekend! So Far the fish count is up to 15 so far in case you were wondering.
For this weeks assignment I would like you guys to get creative! I am looking to build a patio/bbq area in my back yard. The assignment is for you to design this patio hangout.
You must draw the blue prints, give a list of materials and total price of the materials. You can draw the blue prints by hand on paper or by using computer software. Some free easy to use software is SketchUp . To calculate your prices you may use homedepot.ca the cart option will total up the amount.
The criteria of the patio :
1. Needs to have a screened in area to sit out of the flies. Part of the deck does not need a screened area because I want to Bbq in that area.
2. Size needs to be 12ft x 16ft
3. The blue prints must have an arial view, and elevation view of all sides. The dimensions must be listed on all parts of the deck.
Browse the internet to get some ideas if you need to. The best design will be used in the actual build. I will be accepting ideas until Monday May 25th at 4pm. If you need any help with this project please email me and I will answer any questions you have.
Hope you're all doing well. If you need anything or just want to say hey do not hesitate to get a hold of me!
