BEING PREPARED AND READY FOR WORK IN A WORKSHOP?
V. Ryan 2003 - 2021
 
HE IS NOT READY FOR PRACTICAL WORK
 

Anyone working in a workshop, should be concentrating completely, on the use of machines and equipment. A lack of concentration, or a distraction, could result in a accident.

The person below has not got the right attitude, to work safely in a workshop, with all its potential dangers. His full attention is not on the work, he is about to carry out in the workshop.

1. He is using his mobile phone and is absorbed by irrelevant internet content.
2. He has had very little sleep, because he has been watching videos on the internet, late into the night.
3. He is not dressed appropriately for practical work, or even normal class work.
4. He is playing with a Yoyo, bouncing it up / down and fooling around with a football.
5. He is thinking about, what he will eat at break time. He has not had a healthy breakfast.
6. He has not completed his homework, which was to read the safety notes he was given, in preparation for the practical lesson.
7. He is not ready to learn and prefers to be distracted by his thoughts about break time and what he will eat and his next ‘irrelevant’ post on social media.
8. His workshop notebook, has been damaged / ruined, by one of his fizzy energy drinks, spilling in his bag. The sugar content of his drinks, is making him hyperactive and he cannot concentrate or sit still.
9. He has come to school without a pen or pencil or any stationery.
10. He has left his school bag at home.
