1 Safety and Health Accident Reduction Plan Office of Environmental Health and Safety

2 Purpose The Safety and Health Accident Reduction Plan (SHARP) is intended to provide the Los Angeles Unified School District s (LAUSD) management with an objective method to evaluate division specificenvironmental Health and Safety and Risk Management programs, including liability claims, occupational safety, and workers compensation claim performance. In addition, the SHARP provides Division management with a systematic risk based planning process. The program involves the development and implementation of an annual occupational safety and health and liability loss control planning and objective completion tracking tool. The development of the SHARP is a joint effort by the Office of Environmental Health and Safety (OEHS) and your management team. General Information In order to reduce the burden to the general fund that occurs when employees are injured on the job, District staff can evaluate accident and loss trends and implement specific loss prevention and incident avoidance strategies. In order to develop Division or site specific strategies, management can develop a SHARP during each fiscal year, consisting of three principal parts: 1) Overview of organization (Educational Services Center, site and/or Division) current safety and loss control activities; 2) Statistical Performance Goals; and 3) Safety and Loss Prevention Objectives, including project descriptions with target completion dates. The following should be considered when preparing an annual SHARP: All necessary statistical performance data willbe provided by OEHS, upon request. Goals and objectives should focus on critical safety and loss control issues that result in liability or employee related loss. The organization should develop five to seven objectives with appropriate, clearly defined project activity description(s) to reduce potential liability or loss. Objectives should focus on solving the safety and loss control issues within the organization. Statistical goals must demonstrate plan effectiveness to be evaluated according to the successful completion of these objectives. Do not focus on routine or maintenance type projects/activities (i.e., monthly inspections, monthly safety meetings, etc.) unless there is a need to restructure the project activities to improve performance. Senior Management should approve each plan and conduct mid year performance reviews versus plan objectives. Once participating in the program, organizations are requested to submit an annual SHARP plan to OEHS by August 30 of each year. In addition, for the program to be fully effective organizations are requested to submit both mid year (July 1 through Dec 31) and year end (July 1 through June 30) status reports to OEHS. OEHS and the Division of Risk Management and Insurance Services (DRMIS) staff is available for assistance in evaluating organization exposures/risk and providing consultative support to completethe Division SHARP.
