Providing a safe environment in educational institutions is vital for students to learn. Safety has progressed over time with the development of occupational safety and health standards that were established in the 1970’s. Since then, safety has become more important in our world. It is a responsibility and a duty to protect students, faculty and all people within a school system. There is not a more important endeavor than the welfare and safety of youth and children. Striving to maintain a safe environment for education in all public and private school settings is reachable by implementing occupational safety and health standards as well as the development of safety processes and procedures that are designed to benefit each facility.
