Action Plan Feb I looked through the placements which I could get and the placements which I still needed a reply from. I sent another letter off to a police station (queens road). I received a letter which told me that I had to me that if I wanted an interview I had to phone up to confirm it the interview was with the police for 1 week I had to wait a month for my interview.

I received a letter which unfortunately stated due to a high number of people who applied for a placement only a few got through and I was not one of them. Apr Received a phone call stating that there was a placement at a video shop. I decided to take it as I enjoyed movies and I wanted to know how the film industry worked. This citizen issues I plan to investigate are Health & Safety. I plan to investigate these issues because health & safety is a major part of work life, employees want to know that the environment that there working in, is safe and that it takes all the health and safety precautions that are necessary.

I got my information from various resources which included; company polices - Fire Instructions questionnaires - Health & Safety own observation Research - Employment polices Employers - Fire drills & First Aid The information I gathered was fairly easy to get but I had to come back in my own time and collect it. I had to wait a week for the employment polices as the manger had to get permission from the boss to give a copy of it to me because of security reasons. I have learned a great deal of knowledge of the everyday work life through work experience. This has made me confident about future jobs, gave me hope and helped me towards choosing a career option. I learned a number of different skills which include customer service, using new software which increased my I.C.T knowledge. As well as that I learned how to display products, deal with customer enquiries. While on my work experience I also have wrote information about my Rights and Responsibilities this was not my citizenship issue but I think that this is also an important part of working life. Rights I had the rights of having a break. I had a right of a lunch break of an hour. I had the right of talking to people and going outside for a break. I had the right of taking a holiday in any emergency or if I was ill. I had right to be treated fairly and equally. I had the right to tell the staff if I was subjected to any kind of abuse. I had the right to talk to any member of staff and those questions while my duty. I had the right to ask assistance if I was using any kind of equipment. Responsibilities I was responsible to come early before my shift started. I was responsible for punctuality I was responsible for talking to people in a polite manner and come as soon as possible after my breaks. ...read more.
