We want all technological education teachers in Ontario to be able to think through the stages of their projects and learning activities they do with students. Submitting your lesson through SafetyNET means you have a reflective lens for before, during and after you have fun with your students, and protect yourself as a professional educator.
OCTE Best Practice resources are resources and lesson plans submitted by teachers like you. These resources are made available thanks to the commitment and involvement of partners from across Ontario.
SAFEdocs documents were written by OCTE members sponsored by the Ministry of Education in 2013 and align safety resources to the 2009 Technological Education curriculum document.
A .pdf print out of QR codes for teachers is available with cut lines for teachers to stick onto their classroom tools, equipment, and processes. Students will be able to view the video in a class session, re-review on their devices, listen to the .mp3 to lessen the download, or look at the video content transcription. There are lesson plans that go with each one.
Are you or someone you know considering a career as a technological educator? Check out the program at York University.

The immediate response to an emergency often involves First Aid. First Aid involves assisting an injured person until professional medical help can be provided.
The general action tips in the list below should be followed in an emergency. They do not replace the need to be properly trained in first aid. Your teacher will provide you with instructions on what to do in cases of emergencies.
1. Check the scene for dangers, (e.g., electrical shock hazards, chemical spills, hot objects, fire), stay calm and call out for help. Do not touch the victim until immediate dangers such as electrical current are removed.
2. Assist if asked by your teacher to keep the victim comfortable and calm.
3. Call the office for medical help if requested by the teacher.
4. Care for the victim by administering first aid according to your teacher’s instructions.
5. Help keep people who are not needed away from the victim.
