About SafeSchools

All SafeSchools courses are set in a school environment and are authored by leading school safety specialists. Courses include topics in nutritional services, health, employee and student safety, human resources, transportation, informational technology, social and behavioral, environmental, security, special education, and emergency management.

This training program is provided to member districts of the Southwest Washington Workers’ Compensation Trust and Southwest Washington Risk Management Insurance Cooperative because it is our goal to encourage safe work habits, reduce employee injuries and protect school districts from unnecessary costs related to other liability issues.
