Employee Injury and Illness Prevention Program
In order to maintain a safe and healthful work environment the San Leandro Unified School District has developed an Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) for all employees to follow. The IIPP describes the goals, statutory authority, and the responsibilities of all employees under the IIPP. It addresses compliance, hazard identification, accident investigation, hazard mitigation, training, hazard communication, and program documentation. By making employee safety a high priority for every employee we can reduce injuries and illnesses, increase productivity, and promote a safer and healthier environment for all individuals at the San Leandro Unified School District. Our IIPP can be accessed by selecting the link below. An Employee Safety Recommendation form is available under the Forms tab on our website so that employees can report potential safety issues to district administrators.
At the April 12, 2016 Board of Education Meeting, the trustees unanimously voted to adopt a district-wide Employee Wellness Policy.Employee Wellness Policy
All District employees serve as role models for students and are the key to the successful implementation of comprehensive school health and wellness programs. The District and school sites aspire to provide environmental support, resources, and opportunities to enhance the health and wellbeing of employees. This may include but is not limited to workshops, presentations, health fairs, resources and education about: health promotion, stress management, employee morale, healthy lifestyles, injury prevention, chronic disease, and being an exceptional role model. The wellness program may also include health risk assessments, preventative screenings, health coaching, benefit education, workplace safety, work-life balance, and third-party counseling.
Professional learning opportunities will help District employees understand the connection between academics and health, and understand ways in which health and wellness can be integrated into ongoing District reform and academic improvement efforts.
The District will work in partnership with the local bargaining units to identify strategies to support staff in actively promoting and modeling healthy eating and physical activity behaviors. The District promotes and encourages employee participation in health promotion programs and will work in partnership with the local bargaining units to identify programs that are free or low cost for District employees.
