HEALTH AND SAFETY
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is committed to the physical, psychological and social well-being of its students, employees, volunteers, visitors and contractors by providing safe, healthy and injury-free learning and working environments. This includes a requirement to ensure that each student enrolled in a school operated by the Board and each staff member employed by the Board are provided with a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning and working environment that respects diversity and fosters a sense of belonging free of discrimination, harassment, intimidation, bullying and violence.
- Continuous improvement
Health and safety is essential to EIPS' excellence as a school division and a part of everything it does. The Division’s commitment includes providing the necessary resources to meet all applicable legislation and regularly reviewing the health and safety program to improve its effectiveness.
- Shared responsibility
Health and safety is a shared responsibility between the Board, Superintendent, leadership staff, supervisors, employees, students, volunteers, visitors and contractors. All stakeholders are expected to take reasonable care to protect themselves and others, model safe work behaviours and support a positive health and safety culture.
