Summer break is the perfect time for year-round staff to reiterate safety precautions in schools. The National Safety Council (NSC) sponsors National Safety Month in June to bring focus to reducing leading causes of injury in all aspects of life, including schools. NSC provides free posters, fact sheets and more that you may download here.
One way school districts can create a culture of safety for all staff and students is to implement the following:
- Extensive safety training for staff
- Effective incident/accident reporting tools and prevention tactics
- A comprehensive calendar and completion plan for all district, state and federal compliance tasks.
This not only creates a heightened awareness and culture of safety, it helps lower the likelihood of staff and student injuries, district property damage and other associated issues.
