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 at least four times a year to address employee safety concerns and 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.
