Safety Equipment - Summary
This chapter provides a general summary of the types of safety equipment that should be made available within a given school system as well as general locations where the protective equipment or devices should be maintained and used. The reader should note that this is only a partial list and that your school system should be reviewed for unique hazards and site specific hazards at each facility. For example, the Burlington school system does not sponsor a large industrial arts or shop curriculum locally, and as a result, many of these hazards have not been fully assessed during our review.
