Workplace safety is a focus of the Canon-McMillan School District. The committee’s mission is to take a critical look at workplace safety while helping to find cost savings. The committee has equal representation from administration and staff, including teachers, transportation personnel, building administrators, secretaries, custodians, cafeteria workers and Administration Building staff. Each committee member receives mandatory training annually.

The safety committee has earned approval from the Department of Labor and Industry as a Workplace Safety Committee. In 2007, the committee earned the PSBA (Pennsylvania School Boards Association) Insurance Trust Safety Award acknowledging the district for its proactive approach to safety/loss control.

The district stays on top of safety issues and concerns using an on-line reporting system and monthly meetings. The meetings are conducted in a different facility each month. At the conclusion of the committee’s formal meeting, a site walk-through is done and a safety checklist is completed for that building. The committee’s findings are then shared with the building principal or supervisor prior to leaving the building. If any safety violation is found, that building is revisited. All major findings have been remedied. The Workplace Safety Committee has now grown to include a Transportation Safety Sub Committee. The Workplace Safety Committee also analyzes Workers’ Compensation claims and looks for ways to avoid future occurrences.
