Workplace Safety Tips for Schools
The Workers' Compensation exposure for elementary through high school employees will range from moderate to substantial. Typical hazards include slips, trips, and falls, back injuries, burns and skin irritations, electrical- or machinery-related accidents, assaults by students, injuries from breaking up student altercations, sports injuries, exposure to bloodborne pathogens, and stress-related disorders.
It’s important to identify how workplace safety can be improved for school workers to help reduce accidents and injuries that could lead to a workers’ compensation claim. AmTrust’s Loss Control department offers a variety of safety tips and training videos designed to enhance employee safety at your organization.
