Accident Prevention Program
IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ
WISHA safety and health rules require that every employer in Washington State have a written "Accident Prevention Program". The sample Accident Prevention Program found here is provided for the use by school districts served by the Southwest and Southeast Washington Workers' Compensation Trusts and attempts to address hazards that are common to K-12 school districts. It must be noted that each school districts particular written program must be tailored to the specific needs of the district and the hazards found there.
Also provided are sample written programs that address specific hazards such as respiratory protection, fall protection, chemical hazard communication, and control of hazardous energy among others. Every school district may not require each program; it depends on the hazards found in the district.
