Safety for Head Start, School, and Child & Youth Service Providers
Our Safe People – Safe Places model, integrated with child and youth safety practices helps to achieve regulatory and best practice success while implementing loss reduction techniques. We offer both annual service plans and individual services.
Annual Plan: For about the cost of a cup of coffee and bagel per month/per employee, the annual service program combines onsite inspections, a review of written safety plans, and annual training. That's right, for about $1.50 a week/per employee*, a written safety program, site safety inspections (including playground), and training is included. (*cost based 25 employee minimum)
For example the annual plan includes:
Written Injury and Illness Prevention Plan and Codes of Safe Practices (new plan or annual update)
Written Playground Safety Plan (new plan or annual update)
Online "Ask a Safety Coach" (valued at $1,200 year)
Onsite safety walk-through
Annual Safety Training (additional/optional training available)
