Northshore School District
WAC 296-800-130 requires work sites to have a method of identifying, evaluating and communicating safety and health issues brought up by supervisors and employees in the workplace. Each school within the district has the responsibility to establish a safety committee and hold safety meetings to create and maintain a safe and healthy workplace for all employees.
School Safety Coordinator
Each school in the district is provided a stipend for a Safety Committee Coordinator. Secondary schools are also provided a stipend for a Safety Committee member position. These positions report directly to the principal. The coordinator and member should be familiar with the district’s implementation of WAC 296-800-130. See guidance attached.
