Mr. Bartel

 

My entire shop program is designed around a program called, Heads Up for Safety. This program was designed in part, by The British Columbia Ministry of Education. It was designed to provide Technology educators in BC with outlines and best practice standards, in an effort to keep technology students safe. The majority of the procedures I use in the shop come from this program. Students must complete written tests for all the machines in the shop and receive 100% on each test, before being permitted to use any of the machinery in the Rosedale shop.
