Through its comprehensive safety program, the district will attempt to prevent accidents by assuring a safe working and learning environment. Warning systems will be installed and in good working order; accident prevention instruction will be given to students and staff; safety procedures will be taught; and other precautions will be taken in order to prevent accidents and potentially harmful situations.
Further, the district will utilize all appropriate precautions when the application of any pesticide or other potentially harmful substance is used on school premises. Only those products readily available and approved for such use will be used. Those products which can be applied without special licensing or training are most appropriate. Employees will be instructed regarding the correct and safe application of any potentially hazardous or harmful substance. The Material Safety Data Sheets for any product for such purposes will be available for employees and/or members of the public.
