HAZARDOUS MATERIALS

Policy Number: 
Superintendent File: EBAB

There are many areas of school operation, from science laboratories and art departments to custodial services and vehicle maintenance that use a variety of materials that are hazardous.

Hazardous materials include any substance or mixture of substances that pose a fire, explosive reactive, or health hazard as more fully defined by law.

The Superintendent or Superintendent’s designee shall cause to be created procedures that address the purchase, storage, handling, transportation, and disposal of hazardous materials for all District facilities and operations including instructional areas. Emergency response actions and evacuation plans also shall be coordinated with the procedures.

Appropriate school personnel shall be trained to take precautions to prevent accidents and to handle them in the event they do occur.

The District’s voluntary compliance with any statute or regulation to which it is not otherwise subject shall not be construed to create or assume any potential liability under any local, state, or federal law or regulation.
