the safe use and handling of hand, power and machine tools

the use of personal protective equipment in the workshop

elementary first aid procedures

safely use tools, materials and equipment

use personal protective equipment when working with materials, tools and machines

Materials

(refer to Outcomes 5.3.1, 5.3.2, 5.5.1 on pages 12–13)

the properties, structure and applications of materials including:

hardness

ductility

tensile and compressive strength

the elastic and plastic behaviour of materials

the basic structure and advantages of composite materials used in engineered structures

the corrosion and/or degradation of materials used in structures

use materials in the design and production of structures based on an understanding of their properties

conduct experiments and tests to understand the properties of materials

use techniques to minimise corrosion and/or degradation of materials used in practical projects

Equipment, Tools and Machines

(refer to Outcomes 5.2.2, 5.4.2, 5.5.1 on pages 12–13)

a range of equipment, tools and machines used in experiments, prototypes and products
