Safety Talks are brief reminders that encourage and teach school district staff to work safely and are an great way to heighten employee awareness of workplace hazards. Read them, post them, share them with others and use them for your safety meetings. Together we can prevent accidents and employee injuries.
Slips, trips and falls have caused the most work related injuries for the members of the Southwest Washington Workers’ Compensation Trust over the past four school years. In an effort to turn this trend around, the ESD 112 Loss Control Department rolled out a safety campaign focused on this issue.
The Stop Falls Before They Stop You! campaign includes a variety of prevention materials including brief safety talks and safety posters. Near-Miss Nancy and Safety Sam provide tips to keep both employees and students safe by avoiding some common hazards that cause slips, trips and falls.

Accident Prevention Program
WISHA safety and health rules (WAC 296-800-14005) require that employers in Washington State develop a written “Accident Prevention Program”. In addition to an Accident Prevention Program, other safety and health written programs may be required depending on the hazards in your particular school district. The sample documents are informational and advisory. Each school district may customize them to fit the specific needs of that district and the hazards found there.
The sample Accident Prevention Program and the other rule specific documents listed here can provided for the use by school districts served by the Southwest and Southeast Washington Workers’ Compensation Trusts by contacting ESD 112.
