Monthly Safety Meeting Topics 2017-2019

We shared the attached Monthly Safety Meeting Topics 2017-2019 document at the OSS Annual Meeting.  The purpose of this document is to coordinate a consistent employee safety message and to assist in safety compliance throughout your schools, as required by the Injury and Illness Prevention Program.

Each month we will be sending out a 1-2-page Safety Spotlight handout on the upcoming monthly safety meeting topic.  This handout should be shared with your Principals and Directors as a tool for conducting a brief 5-10 minute safety overview with all staff (this can be done during regular department meetings). Please remember to have a sign-in sheet each month for your training records.

The topic for July is Heat Illness Prevention.  Please share the attached Safety Spotlight with employees highlighting important heat illness information.

The California Code of Regulations Heat Illness Standard requires employers to have a written Heat Illness Prevention Plan.  The requirements of the Heat Illness Prevention Plan were updated in 2015.  If your Heat Illness Prevention Plan does not reflect these changes or if you do not have a written Heat Illness Prevention Plan, please contact me for assistance.

For more information on heat illness prevention, please visit the Cal/OSHA website at
