ACCIDENT PREVENTION AND SAFETY PROCEDURES
The Board of Education seeks to ensure the safety of students and employees of the district while on district property.
The Board and Administrative staff, in cooperation with students and employees, will take reasonable measures to prevent accidents on the school premises, including the following:
1. immediately report any conditions involving equipment or buildings which may be dangerous to student or employee health or welfare;
2. immediately report any unsafe practices by anyone in the building or on the grounds;
3. ride bicycles only on the roadways, not the sidewalks. Bicycles are to be parked in the rack provided by the school. Pleasure riding on the school grounds is prohibited during school hours; and
4. observe the 15 mile per hour speed limit on school grounds.
Formal objective investigations of all accidents are to be immediately conducted by the Building Principal and the results of the investigation are to be presented to the Superintendent in a written report. The results of selected investigations should be communicated to employees and students for the purpose of determining how the accident might have been avoided.
Eye Safety Devices
Eye safety devices shall be provided for all students, instructors and visitors who are engaged in or observing the use of materials or equipment which may potentially damage the eyesight of those involved. Such activities and materials are listed in Section 141.10 of the Commissioner's Regulations. The Board directs the Superintendent to establish regulations for education in eye safety and for the wearing of appropriate eye safety devices.
