Safety Coordinator Program
The Safety and Loss Control Program administers a District-wide Safety Coordinator Program pertaining to Dallas ISD educational facilities (schools), non-educational facilities, and operational departments classified as “High Risk”, due to the greater level of risk they encounter while conducting their daily job tasks. Our District Safety Coordinators are employees who are selected by their Principal or Department Head to serve as a safety representative to serve in the District-wide Safety Coordinator Program.
Safety & Loss Control team members are highly skilled professionals committed to providing Safety Coordinators with the necessary tools to successfully ensure health and safety at their site. They are trained to be in compliance with governing regulatory agencies, District policy, and departmental or job-related safety standards or procedures.
Throughout each school year, they are provided the most current health and safety information via annual workshops, quarterly newsletters, monthly emails, and periodic updates to the District website. Safety & Loss Control also has teamed with Strategic District Partners such as Emergency Operations, Environmental Services and Health Services, to further ensure District Safety Coordinators are provided a wealth of customer service pertaining to school safety.
To encourage even greater safety strategies and processes are applied at District sites, Risk Management hosts an annual safety award program for Safety Coordinators who choose to go above and beyond the minimum program requirements. Safety awards and/or incentives are given to the top ten schools successful in bringing safety to a higher level. Throughout the school year, recognition is also given to sites who go the extra mile to provide a safe educational and work environment, promote worker safety training, and conduct other outstanding safety activities.
Risk Management’s Safety & Loss Control Program is both committed and honored to be in charge of the Safety Coordinator Program and has held a successful track record in mitigating injuries and losses through consistent training and management of approximately 300 Safety Coordinators per school year. It’s our way of demonstrating “Safety Is Key In Dallas ISD!”
