CRAVEN COUNTY SCHOOLS FACILITY and OCCUPANT SAFETY PROGRAM
WHY DO WE HAVE TO DO THIS? Knowledge of the contents of the Safety Program enhances safety awareness and provides a more conducive environment for learning. Adherence to the Local, State and Federal codes and regulations included in the plan assures that Craven County Schools are in compliance with these rulings.

CRAVEN COUNTY SCHOOLS ASBESTOS AWARENESS PLAN THERE IS AN ASBESTOS MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR EACH FACILITY IN THE CRAVEN COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM. THIS PLAN IS LOCATED IN THE RECEPTION AREA OF EACH FACILITY AND CAN BE ACCESSED UPON REQUEST. THE AHERA NOTEBOOK CONTAINS INFORMATION ON ACTIONS TO INFORM BUILDING OCCUPANTS ABOUT ASBESTOS THAT MAY BE PRESENT IN THEIR FACILITY INCLUDING DETAILS ABOUT INSPECTIONS, REINSPECTIONS, AND SURVEILLANCE ACTIVITIES. THE DIRECTOR OF MAINTENANCE AND THE SAFETY COORDINATOR ARE THE DESIGNATED CONTACT PERSONS FOR THIS PLAN. OSHA 29CFR CFR Section 763
COVERS WORKPLACE FIRE SAFETY ITEMS SUCH AS: REPORTING EMERGENCIES KNOWING ALARM WARNING SIGNALS PROPERLY MARKED FIRE EXITS APPROPRIATE FIREFIGHTING EQUIPMENT WRITTEN EMERGENCY PLANS INCLUDING EVACUATION PROCEDURES AND OCCUPANT ACCOUNTABILITY OSHA 29CFR
EMPLOYEE ALARM SYSTEM EACH FACILITY IN THE CRAVEN COUNTY SCHOOL SYSTEM IS EQUIPPED WITH AN ALARM SYSTEM TO WARN PERSONNEL WHEN THEY SHOULD EVACUATE. DO YOU KNOW YOURS?
Keep exits clear of bookcases, desks, etc. If primary exit is blocked, go quickly to secondary exit. If both are blocked, go away from hazard and create a new exit if necessary. Keep exits clear of chairs, bookcases, desks, etc. If primary exit is blocked, go quickly to secondary exit. If both are blocked, go away from hazard and create a new exit if necessary. Do not panic, remain calm. If time allows, close all doors and windows when evacuating. At the designated area, account for everyone in your charge. Do not return to the building until told to do so by an authorized person.
Storage must be kept at least 36” away from electrical panels, do not block access. No combustible/flammable storage is allowed in mechanical, boiler, or electrical rooms. All electrical equipment must have a three-prong grounding plug. Walkways and isles should be kept clear of cords or cords should be covered to prevent trip and fire hazards and damage to the cords. Extension cords are for temporary use only; including the use of decorative string lights which are to be used only during holidays. OSHA 29CFR
Use caution when walking on wet, oily, icy or other unstable surfaces. Immediately clean up spills. Be aware of “WET FLOOR” signs. Keep walkways clear to prevent fall hazards. DO NOT STAND OR CLIMB ON A DESK, CHAIR, TABLE, BOX, or OTHER UNSTABLE SURFACE to reach for an object, put a tape in a VCR, work on a bulletin board, etc. Use a ladder. OSHA 29CFR SLIPS, TRIPS, & FALLS
Materials attached to the walls should be 24” down from the ceiling. Plug-in type air fresheners that use electrical current are not approved for educational occupancy use. Space heaters, coffee pots, microwaves, and other “for household use only” rated appliances are not permitted in classrooms. Superintendent Level Documentation for refrigerators in classrooms must be on file at the school. All fire-rated classroom doors and ceilings must remain free of combustible materials. Classroom exit doors shall have an unencumbered line of sight into the room during normal operating conditions. FIRE PREVENTION IS EVERYONE’S BUSINESS OSHA 29CFR
Defective lighting and emergency/exit lights should be reported immediately and replaced ASAP. Damaged or missing ceiling tiles must be replaced ASAP to prevent a “chimney effect” in the event of a fire. Windows and blinds shall remain free of combustible materials. Mezzanines, mechanical, electrical, boiler rooms shall not be used for combustible storage. Charging of batteries for buffers or golf carts is not allowed inside of the school building (in mechanical rooms, on stage, etc.) Gasoline shall be stored in sheds or other exterior areas that are not attached to the school building. All areas shall be kept free of trash and debris; both inside and outside. No storage of paper, cardboard, or other combustible material shall be within 18” of a kiln or hot water heater.
ALWAYS KEEP BUILDING FIRE EXITS CLEAR! REPORT ANY DEFECTIVE EXIT SIGNS OR EMERGENCY LIGHTS DO NOT PLACE ANY OBJECTS IN EXIT PATH NEVER SECURE A FIRE EXIT TAKE FIRE, TORNADO AND OTHER DISASTER DRILLS SERIOUSLY DO NOT PROP OPEN A FIRE OR SMOKE DOOR DO NOT BLOCK A FIRE ALARM PULL STATION IN ANY WAY
MOST SCHOOL FACILITY FIRE EXTINGUISHERS ARE CLASSIFIED AS ABC-ALL PURPOSE THIS MEANS THEY CAN BE USED FOR ANY TYPE OF FIRE: PAPER (ash) A LIQUID (boom) B ELECTRIC (current)C
HOW TO USE A FIRE EXTINGUISHER REMEMBER PASS P = PULL THE PIN A = AIM THE HOSE S= SQUEEZE THE HANDLES S = SWEEP THE HOSE BACK AND FORTH AT THE BASE OF THE FLAMES
INSPECTING YOUR FIRE EXTINGUISHER LIFT IT - IT SHOULD BE HEAVY CHECK GAUGE - NEEDLE IN GREEN ZONE CHECK HOSE - TIGHT AND NOT PLUGGED UP MAKE SURE PIN IS IN PLACE AND SECURED IF DEFECTIVE, NOTIFY YOUR SAFETY REP
… EMPLOYEES HAVE BOTH A NEED AND “A RIGHT TO KNOW” THE HAZARDS AND IDENTITIES OF THE CHEMICALS THAT THEY ARE EXPOSED TO ON THE JOB. THEY NEED TO KNOW WHAT PROTECTIVE MEASURES ARE AVAILABLE TO PREVENT ADVERSE EFFECTS FROM OCCURRING. OSHA 29CFR
EVERY HAZARDOUS CHEMICAL USED IN CRAVEN COUNTY SCHOOLS IS REQUIRED TO HAVE A MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET. THIS SHEET CALLED THE MSDS IS KEPT ON FILE AT EACH WORK LOCATION WHERE THE PRODUCT IS USED. AT A SCHOOL THIS NOTEBOOK IS USUALLY IN THE MAIN OFFICE AND FREQUENTLY ONE IS KEPT IN THE WORK AREA WHERE THE PRODUCT IS STORED OR USED. AN INVENTORY LIST OF ALL HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS USED IN THE FACILITY SHOULD BE KEPT IN THE FRONT OF THE MSDS NOTEBOOK. ALL CHEMICAL CONTAINERS MUST CONTAIN A LABEL WITH THE NAME OF THE CHEMICAL, APPROPRIATE HAZARD WARNINGS, AND THE NAME OF THE MANUFACTURER. THIS REQUIRED LABELING ALSO APPLIES TO SECONDARY CONTAINERS.
OLDER MSD SHEETS HAVE 9 SECTIONS. THE MORE RECENT MSD SHEETS HAVE 16 SECTIONS. 1.Chemical Product and Company Identification 2.Composition/Ingredient Info 3.Hazards Identification 4.First Aid Measures 5.Fire Fighting Measures 6.Accidental Release Measures 7.Handling and Storage 8.Exposure Controls/ Personal Protection 1.Chemical Product and Company Identification 2.Composition/Ingredient Info 3.Hazards Identification 4.First Aid Measures 5.Fire Fighting Measures 6.Accidental Release Measures 7.Handling and Storage 8.Exposure Controls/ Personal Protection 9.Physical and Chemical Properties 10.Stability and Reactivity 11.Toxicological Information 12.Ecological Information 13.Disposal Considerations 14.Transportation Information 15.Regulatory Information 16.Other Information 9.Physical and Chemical Properties 10.Stability and Reactivity 11.Toxicological Information 12.Ecological Information 13.Disposal Considerations 14.Transportation Information 15.Regulatory Information 16.Other Information
BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE NFPA DIAMOND DIAGRAM. IT IS FOUND IN SECTION 1 OF THE OLDER MSDS AND SECTION 5 OF THE MORE RECENT MSD SHEET.
Air Contaminants Keep doors and windows closed Never mix cleaning compounds or chemicals Use appropriate PPE Blood borne Pathogens OSHA 29CFR All affected employees shall receive annual training. Strict adherence to the specified practices and procedures is expected. Use provided PPE as necessary.
IF THE OBJECT IS TOO HEAVY, LARGE OR AWKWARD, GET HELP. PUSH RATHER THAN PULL A LARGE OBJECT. BEND AT THE KNEES INSTEAD OF AT THE WAIST. LIFT SLOWLY, SMOOTHLY AND WITHOUT JERKING. AVOID UNNECESSARY TWISTING; TURN YOUR FEET NOT YOUR HIPS OR SHOULDERS. TAKE YOUR TIME AND USE THE SAME TECHNIQUES WHEN SETTING THE OBJECT DOWN.
IF A LOCK-OUT/TAG-OUT DEVICE IS PLACED ON A PIECE OF MACHINERY OR EQUIPMENT, IT IS ILLEGAL FOR ANYONE OTHER THAN THE PERSON WHO PLACED THE LOCK OR TAG TO TAMPER WITH OR OPERATE THE PIECE OF EQUIPMENT. ONLY THE PERSON WHO PLACED THE LOCK OR TAG MAY REMOVE THE LOCK OR TAG. OSHA 29CFR
ALTHOUGH THIS MAY NOT SEEM IMPORTANT LIVES ARE AT RISK! Only trained and authorized employees shall attach or remove lock out/ tag out devices. Established procedures must be followed for removal of equipment or system from service.
Do not lean from a rolling chair to pick up objects from the floor. Filing cabinets can pinch, crush, cut or trip a user. Be cautious of fire hazards in the office environment such as solvents, decorative lighting, electric appliances, and non-flame resistant decorations. Move heavy objects with a hand truck or get help. Electric office machines should be properly grounded. Do not let cords become trip hazards.
PPE will be provided, used and maintained in a sanitary condition whenever it is necessary by reason of hazards of processes or environment, chemical or radiological hazards, or mechanical irritants encountered in a manner capable of causing injury to any part of the body through absorption, inhalation or physical contact. OSHA 29CFR
A job hazard assessment may be conducted to determine if hazards are present requiring the use of any of the following PPE: Head protection – hardhats Ear protection – earplugs Eye and face protection – safety goggles, face shield Foot protection – safety boots or shoes Hand protection – gloves to meet the appropriate standard for the hazard Respiratory protection – dust mask
Check ladder for soundness and proper working condition Position ladder firmly on a level surface Work facing the ladder, both feet on the rungs Only one person on the ladder at a time Do not load the ladder beyond the manufacturer’s maximum rated capacity Do not reach out more than an arm’s length Do not stand on the top step of a stepladder OSHA 29CFR
