Workplace and Classroom Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) Procedures

The Shaker Heights CSD Environmental Health and Safety Program is designed for injury prevention and involves management, supervisors, and employees in identifying and eliminating hazards that may develop during our work process. The Shaker Heights CSD Schools are inspected bi-annually by the Cuyahoga County Board of Health (CCBH)

Shaker Heights CSD is committed to providing employees with a safe and healthful workplace. It is the policy of this organization that employees report unsafe conditions and do not perform work tasks if the work is considered unsafe. Employees must report all accidents, injuries and unsafe conditions to their supervisors. No such report will result in retaliation, penalty or other disincentive.

Employee recommendations to improve safety and health conditions will be given thorough consideration by our Administration. The Administration will give top priority to and provide the necessary resources to correct unsafe conditions. All employees are reminded that no task is so important that an employee must violate a safety rule or take a risk of injury or illness in order to get the job done. Consequently, any employee who willfully or repeatedly violates workplace safety rules may be subject to disciplinary action.

Administration will be actively involving employees in establishing and maintaining an effective safety program. Our program will include

  • Providing safety and health education and training;
  • Promoting employee participation;
  • Reviewing and updating workplace safety rules.
