Safety/Wellness

The personal safety of each employee while in the performance of his or her work activity is a top priority of the Shasta County office of Education. SCOE is committed to providing funds for risk management programs of safety activities, employee training, environmental testing, and purchase of safety equipment. These funds ensure that all employees have the opportunity to be informed and trained in the highest standard of safe work practices.

The Safety Wellness Awareness Group (SWAG) is a SCOE sponsored committee that meets four times a year to address employee safety concerns and monthly to promote awareness of habits which can improve health and wellbeing in our work place. The SWAG committee also coordinates with the Wellness Plan being offered by the Shasta Trinity School Insurance Group (STSIG). The Safety Wellness Awareness Group (SWAG) will assist Supervisors, Site Administrators and employees in creating a culture of safety and wellness. This requires open lines of communication where employees have the opportunity and are eager to participate in safety and wellness programs.

Injury and Illness Prevention Program

The California Code of Regulations (CCR), Title 8, Section 3203, require employers to maintain a safe and healthful workplace for employees. These regulations are enforced by the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Cal/OSHA). This IIPP has been developed to provide organizational structure and procedures to assure there are effective programs in place to identify and mitigate actual and potential hazards to the safety and health of SCOE staff, volunteers, and visitors.

Injury & Illness Prevention Program Summary

Snack-n-Chat 2017/18 Workshops

SWAG is partnering again this year with our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through Anthem to offer some Wellness Seminars for the 2017/18 school year. We have renamed them this year to "Snack-n-Chat" since we don't actually serve lunch but we will again this year be providing some light snacks!

Each seminar will be approximately 45 minutes in length with time at the end for questions. We will have raffle prizes and no registration required. We hope you can join us for one or more seminars!
