District Safety Committee

District Safety Committee
"Safety rules alone cannot prevent accidents. It takes all employees and students working together. Most accidents are caused by carelessness; either failing to do what one is supposed to do, or, by doing something one is not supposed to do."

A Two-pronged Approach to Reducing Accidents
The first is simply by raising awareness. No one wants to injure themselves. Small activities such as hanging safety reminder posters, including short articles in the campus newsletter and rewarding an employee found performing their daily tasks safely are extremely cost effective. An increased awareness of the need to always practice good work habits goes a long way toward preventing accidents.
The second is a formal safety training program designed to reinforce good habits and eliminate bad ones. All employees are required to participate in a 5 - 10 minute monthly safety training designed to focus on one or two simple concepts. Los Fresnos CISD uses the "Train the Trainer" method where District Safety Committee members meet once a month to review the topic for that month and then return to their campus or department and conduct the training with their employees.
Monthly training materials can be accessed by individuals on the District Safety Committee distribution list from within the district network by clicking here.
