Risk Management

The Risk Management Department is responsible for managing uncertainty of exposures that affect the Inglewood Unified School District. We are committed to serving the District, its employees, students, parents, and community members to promote a safe work and learning environment.  
Property & Liability
Certificates of insurance (COIs) are documents containing all the essential details of an insurance policy in an easily digestible, standardized format. A COI is intended to prove a policy’s status, provide quick access to its coverage details, reduce risk exposure, and protect against third-party liability. Third Parties should utilize the below online forms to request or submit a Certificate of Insurance to the Inglewood Unified School District. A copy of the Contract, Agreement, or Use Permit is required for requests and appreciated for submissions.
Industrial Injuries
Employees who are injured or become ill arising out of and in the course of their employment have rights to workers' compensation benefits under California law.  An employee who has sustained an industrial injury should immediately notify their direct supervisor and see Industrial Injuries for more detailed information.
Safety Drills
Every person and public officer managing, controlling, or in charge of any public, private, or parochial school, other than a two-year community college, shall cause the fire alarm signal to be sounded not less than once every calendar month and shall conduct a fire drill at least once every calendar month at the elementary level and at least four times every school year at the intermediate levels. A fire drill shall be held at the secondary level not less than twice every school year.  The fire drill shall be conducted in accordance with either (a) or (b).
  1. The governing board may arrange for a fire department to conduct fire drills for the school.
  2. The principal of each school shall conduct the fire drills. In this case, all pupils, teachers, and other employees shall be required to leave the building.

The earthquake emergency procedure system shall include, but not be limited to, all of the following:
  1. A school building disaster plan, ready for implementation at any time, for maintaining the safety and care of students and staffs.
  2. A drop procedure. As used in this article, “drop procedure” means an activity whereby each student and staff member takes cover under a table or desk, dropping to his or her knees, with the head protected by the arms, and the back to the windows. A drop procedure practice shall be held at least once each school quarter in elementary schools and at least once a semester in secondary schools.
  3. Protective measures to be taken before, during, and following an earthquake.
  4. A program to ensure that the students and that both the certificated and classified staff are aware of, and properly trained in, the earthquake emergency procedure system.
School sites should complete the online Drill Verification Form following each drill.  For questions regarding emergency drills, please contact the School Safety Department at (310) 419-5250.
Safety Programs
In California every employer has a legal obligation to provide and maintain a safe and healthful workplace for employees, according to the California Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1973. As of 1991, a written, effective Injury and Illness Prevention Program (IIPP) is required for every California employer.  An IIPP is a proactive process to help employers find and fix workplace hazards before employees are hurt. 
The Inglewood Unified School District Safety Committee brings staff members and management together to create a culture of safety within the organization.  The committee reviews health, safety, sanitation, and working conditions.
Safety Resources
Employees may access online training modules offered through Keenan Safe Schools.  Training modules offer a wide range of learning opportunities related to injury prevention, disaster and emergency preparedness, employment liability, environmental concerns, infectious disease, security, behavior management, and more.  Employees should utilize their Employee ID to log into the portal and follow the user instructions.
