This is the place to start if you're a student or a teacher in a Planning 10 or technology education class, or in Graduation Transitions 10–12, Education Ministry-authorized Work Experience 12, or a secondary school apprenticeship program. It's also useful if you just want to know more about workplace health and safety.
Student WorkSafe is linked to the B.C. curriculum and includes features to meet a variety of educational needs:
- The activities are adaptable to a variety of instructional settings, allowing teachers to use the materials in whole class, small group, and independent learning solutions.
- The activities provide for student choice and flexibility, enabling students to personalize their learning by focusing on topics that are most relevant to their education and career goals.
- The resource offers opportunities for students to think critically about workplace safety, and to relate workplace safety concepts to other areas of their lives — at school, at home, and in the community.
The Student WorkSafe 10–12 resource package consists of the following components:
- Resources for Teachers — three instructional modules and support materials for teachers to deliver learning activities in a wide range of education settings
- Independent Learning Guide — for students working on their own as part of a self-directed learning plan or distance education course
- Student resource page — worksheets, online resources, and links to print and video materials to support the various activities in both the Teacher Guide and the Independent Learning Guide
- A Workplace Safety Knowledge Test and Answer Key — for summative assessment of student learning
- A Workplace Safety Certificate for students' use as evidence of learning for school or workplace purposes
