Sample Staff Letter from Safety and Health Coordinator

Date: _______

Dear Career-Technical Education Teacher:

Enclosed is your first packet of checklists as we discussed at the (date) staff meeting. Also enclosed are directions, a list of abbreviations, and a question and answer sheet about the checklists. All career-technical educators in our district are being asked to complete them.

Please be sure to answer all of the questions so that I will know that you did not inadvertently overlook some of them. Use the N/A (not applicable) category for questions that don’t apply to your situation.

After I receive your completed checklists, I will set up a meeting with you to discuss them. I’ll be especially interested in hearing your suggestions and ideas for correcting any problems that you might identify.

The checklists were prepared by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. Their purpose is to help our district protect teachers and students from occupational safety and health hazards and to maintain compliance with safety, health, and environmental regulations that potentially apply to career-technical education.

Please call me if you have any questions. Thanks for doing your part to help make (name of school district) a safe and healthful learning environment.

Safety and Health Coordinator
