Safety Management

Edit This Page

Student, staff & visitor safety is a primary concern of the San Diego Unified School District. The District provides a safety program to maintain safe working conditions and equipment at all times; to ensure that hazardous materials are appropriately managed; to comply with standards prescribed by applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, to conduct continuous education and training on safe work practices, and serve as the environmental health & safety contact for school staff, parents and the community.

The Environmental Health & Safety Office (EH&S) is part of Operations Division and utilizes a Zone Management concept similar to Physical Plant Operations whereby the District is split into four geographical zones. Each zone is assigned a dedicated Safety Compliance Technician as their point of contact for environmental health & safety.
