STAFF HEALTH AND SAFETY

 


The health of all district personnel is of vital importance to the school district. Through its safety program and various policies pertaining to employees, the Board will seek to ensure their safety during working hours and assist them in the maintenance of good health. The district will respond to employee requests for reasonable accommodations when an employee has a disability as defined by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 or the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). All employees will receive annual training on universal precautions and the district's communicable disease policy.


Professional employees will provide written notice to the building administrator of conditions that are unsafe or that jeopardize the health or safety of district employees or students. Building administrators will acknowledge receipt of all such notices and will respond within seven days, in writing, concerning what actions, if any, are to be taken.


Physical Examinations


The district will only make medical inquiries, require physical exams or keep medical information on an employee in accordance with law.


Individuals employed by the district or through a contracted service to drive district transportation must annually file a statement from a medical examiner with the district that indicates that they are physically qualified to operate district transportation for the purpose of transporting students. A new driver must file this statement prior to his or her initial operation of district transportation.


The Board will reimburse employees who are required by statute to have a health certificate in an amount not to exceed $12.50 upon receipt of a completed health certificate and upon receipt of a payment to a physician for the required physical examination.


Medical records must be maintained on separate forms in separate medical files and shall be kept confidential.
