Employee Safety

Employees are encouraged to continually assess their work environment for hazards, inspect their tools and equipment before use, be aware of other safety issues and report any problems in writing to their supervisor utilizing a Safety Concern/Suggestion form located here:

Please report any safety hazards to Michael Dixon (District Safety Coordinator) or Lorena Castaneda (Facilities/Construction Secretary) in Facilities, Maintenance, & Operations immediately.

District Safety Incentive Program

The District Safety Committee and School Insurance Program for Employees (SIPE) are working together to provide employees with an opportunity to win Amazon Gift Cards for those employees that participate in the District's Safety Incentive Program. The objective of having a Safety Incentive Program is to increase employee awareness of safety issues and procedures while reducing the direct and indirect costs of accidents and injuries.

Approximately every month, a link to a fun safety quiz will be emailed to all District employees. Employees that answer all the questions correctly will be entered to win. Winners will be selected by the District Safety Committee using a random number generator.

For more information please contact Lorena Castaneda at (805) 474-3000 Ext. 1032.

SIPE- Schools Insurance Program for Employees

Originally called the Self Insurance Program for Employees, the joint powers authority was established in 1977 to service the self-insurance system for workers’ compensation claims against member agencies. The SIPE Board of Directors established a risk management research and development committee which functions in the areas of safety and loss control. The goal is to provide service and a quick response to member needs.  This is a brand new website, but you do NOT need to set up a new account.
