Safety Program

 

The Board acknowledges the importance of safety for students, staff and others having business with the District.  Safety education, accident prevention and  proper supervision are important as protective measures and also OSHA means to promote a culture of safety awareness.

 

The Board directs the formation of a District Safety Committee comprised of employer and employee representatives as outlined in the Montana Safety Culture Act.

 

The Board directs the development of an Exposure Control Plan for employees to eliminate or minimize work‑related exposure to bloodborne pathogens, particularly Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Hepatitis B Virus (HBV).

 

The District will participate in the prosecution of any individual(s) who may disturb any school or school meetings, insult or abuse any school employee or student during the course of the school/work day, or otherwise violate the laws of the State of Montana regarding school disturbance or individual protection for school employees or students.

 

It shall be the Superintendent’s responsibility to execute this program.  The Superintendent may delegate this responsibility to other staff members.
