    Come in with your laptop… leave with a fully compliant Healthy and Safe Schools (HASS) plan!

    The goal of this session is to help you complete a fully compliant HASS plan before you leave. ODE staff will go through the new model plan, step by step, answering your questions about what information needs to be added or altered to make the plan fit for your district or charter school.

    Additionally, ODE will cover the Annual Statement, which is a newly required document. As time allows, we will discuss the new program for mandatory testing for lead in drinking water.

    Please bring your laptop and a copy of your previous HASS plan. If there are changes in responsible persons or other elements in your existing HASS plan, please bring that information with you as well.

    Additional information participants need to bring to the training includes: list of schools or buildings owned or leased with address information, email links to radon plans, IPM plans and know where your test results are posted.

    The rule as adopted simply eliminates three NAICS codes from exempt status in regards to filling out the OSHA 300 injury tracking log. 

    NAICS 6111 (Elementary and Secondary Schools), 
    NAICS 6116 (Other Schools of Instruction), and 
    NAICS 6117 (Educational Support Services),

    from the list of exempt industries in Table 1 of the rule, effective January 1, 2018. This means that the existing recordkeeping rules will apply to those industries from that date forward.
