Welcome to the School Safety Department
Injuries, accidents and incidents cost you through pain and suffering, lost wages due to time lost, your fellow workers by having to pick up your load, and Granville County Schools by hiring substitutes, insurance costs, and Workman Compensation premiums. The purpose is to build and keep a safe workplace by all of the GCS family, for the employees and all others that enter our facilities.
It is your responsibility to cultivate common sense habits and logical safety thinking to ensure your own, students and fellow employees a safe and secure workplace. This responsibility is shared by every individual to promote a Safety minded culture for the benefit of all.
It is the employers responsibility to see that training is available, documented, and applied across all facilities. Supervisors are to determine Safety training needed to be compliant with GCS policies and OSHA Regulations.
