What is Safety?

Safety is a broad term and can mean something very different to every person.  Safety is important to everyone and not just only at work, but also at home.  Safety is about knowing how to identify and control hazards that we face and applying key principles to eliminate injuries and accidents.  Our goal is to provide our members with the necessary tools and knowledge to perform their jobs while working safely.  Ultimately, it’s up to each person to work safely while at the same time looking out for the safety of others.  

SIPE’s safety services are available at no charge to our member districts.  Our staff is knowledgeable in all aspects of safety which provides a valuable resource when questions arise.  Our services include:
