: This workbook can be used by an individual to help him identify the Essential Skills he is strong in and the ones that may need improvement. It includes exercises based on the Essential Skills of reading, document use, numeracy, and writing, and provides examples of how those skills are used in the skilled trades.
The workbook contains space for writing responses, and an answer guide where the user can check his responses.
The exercises are based on the kinds of materials that would be found in a workplace. For example, the section on document use requires the respondent to examine a poster showing the hazard symbols used in the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS), then answer questions about it.
