Hazardous Substances   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board recognizes that potentially hazardous substances are used in the daily operations of our schools. The Superintendent or designee shall ensure these substances are inventoried, used, stored and regularly disposed of in a safe and legal manner.

Insofar as possible, the Superintendent or designee shall minimize the quantities of hazardous substances stored on school property and shall substitute less dangerous materials for hazardous substances.

Hazard Communication Program

The Superintendent or designee shall develop, implement and monitor a written hazard communication program in accordance with state law. As part of this program, he/she shall ensure that employees are fully informed about the properties and potential hazards of substances to which they may be exposed and that material safety data sheets are readily accessible to them.

Teachers shall instruct students about the importance of proper handling, storage, disposal and protection when using any potentially hazardous substance.
