Building Maintenance - 101
This program will walk through typical repairs that facilities staff may encounter. It will include an overview of preventative maintenance as well as looking for damage and repairing roofing, the building envelope including windows and doors and the mechanical/electrical systems. There will also be discussion on the tools that SDAO Risk Management can bring to you to help with building inspections. At the end of the program participants will have some ideas for not only what issues to look for in a school, but also some ideas for repair and maintenance.
Building Maintenance – 201
This program is designed to be an on-site inspection of school buildings. Conducted in depth by SDAO Risk Management staff, the goal will be a detailed inspection of major building components including roofs, the building envelope, electrical/mechanical systems and a review CPTED issues immediately around buildings. At the end participants will have ideas for areas of improvement in facility maintenance and safety.
Building - Grounds and Athletic Fields - 101
This program will look at grounds maintenance. It will include ideas for regular inspections of grounds and the associated components like fences, gates and utilities. It will also look at IPM and athletic fields, both grass and artificial turf, bleachers and other exterior components (water fountains, irrigation, sheds, etc.) At the end the participants will have some ideas for inspections to keep their facilities in better shape and some ideas for repair and maintenance.
Building - Grounds – 201
This program is designed to be an on-site inspection of school grounds including the perimeter, parking areas, playing fields and other components of the school grounds. At the end the participants will have some ideas for improving grounds and safety at their facility.
Fire extinguisher use
Learn the basics of fire extinguisher use, different types of fires and fire extinguishers and how to conduct required inspections. The first goal at every school is to get the students out of the building safely then consider the use of a fire extinguisher. If needed you need to know how to use a fire extinguisher so we test your ability to extinguish a real fire.
General hazard identification
Benefit from PACE experience. This class provides resources to mitigate risks in shops, art departments, stages and elsewhere in your facilities.
The hidden presence of lead in many types of building/building products has had a silent but deadly impact throughout human history. In fact, some historians consider the harmful effects of lead to have been a leading cause in the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. Unfortunately, victims of lead poisoning are often unaware that the ordinary flu-like systems they are experiencing are likely to develop into much more serious long-term consequences. Learn about the potentially detrimental effects of lead in a school building and how to keep your staff and students safe from them.
When a visitor enters your district, they have a reasonable expectation of not getting injured. This means that the district is responsible for maintaining a relatively safe environment. This is known as “premises liability”. For example, a courier delivering a package may sue you for injuries if he/she slips and falls on a banana peel in the driveway. However, if that same courier happened to be intoxicated or otherwise acted in an unsafe manner, then he/she may not have a valid claim. In such cases, the court will focus on the status of the injured visitor, the condition of the property and/or the specific activities involved. This training will help participants to better understand the risks involved with premises liability and how best to mitigate or eliminate them.
Playground hazard identification
Learn how to inspect equipment, what to look for to reduce risks and best practices for keeping playgrounds safe for students. Identify public playground hazards (entrapment, entanglement, crush and shear, protrusions, tripping), ranks hazards according to injury potential, and helps district to prioritize repairs and removals and to routinely inspect their playground equipment in order to reduce injuries.
School Hazard Awareness
Benefit from the PACE risk management consultants experience. This class highlights all hazards associated with a school building, starting in the parking lot and entrance to the school. Then we travel through the hazards in all classroom types and common areas, such as weight rooms, gyms, theaters, athletic fields, etc. This class is designed for administrators, maintenance and custodial staff.
Science Laboratory Safety
This class is designed to review safety procedures including the use of fume hoods, chemical storage, spill containment and the hierarchy of safety controls – elimination, substitution, engineering controls, administrative controls and personal protective equipment - for best practices and safety.
Slips, trips, and falls are a leading cause of injuries. Effective solutions are often simple, inexpensive, and can lead to many other side benefits as well. This training will help you to achieve your injury prevention goals by showing you how fall accidents happen. You will also learn to identify common trouble areas and how to prevent or minimize patrons and students from falling on your campuses.
Theater Safety Training
This class is designed to teach safe practices in the theater. The very nature of theater involves some special hazards, including safety hazards, fire hazards and chemical hazards. Backstage crew, performers, and sometimes even the audience can be at risk. Within the theater, there is lifting of heavy scenery, and manipulation of this often-large scenery, props, and lighting or special effect equipment in a very small space. The hours of work are irregular, and the backstage is often very cramped, especially in older theatres, and there is the pressure that the "show must go on."
