School Teacher Safety Tips
Certain school supplies can become dangerous weapons or hazardous materials if swallowed. Keep a close eye on your supply of glue, scissors, and even chalk. Keeping these items organized and safe will cut down on potential accidents in the classroom.
Everyone can remember that one special teacher—the one that took the extra time and effort to show that they really cared about their students and wanted them to succeed. In today’s world, it’s becoming harder and harder to be an effective teacher with all the added pressures and difficulties that now come with the job. But, there is one area where teachers cannot give up: safety. Even if it feels futile to try and get kids to learn anything these days, you must be able to guarantee their safety while they are in your care. By reviewing these simple safety tips, you will see some of the ways to keep yourself and your students safer in the classroom. And putting forth that little bit of effort to make a safer environment just might show kids that you really care.
Know basic safety
- Know all the proper procedures in the event of a major emergency. The children in your care will be looking to you for guidance if there is a fire or catastrophe.
- Practice tornado and earthquake drills with your students so that in the event of such a disaster everyone knows exactly what to do.
- Know where all emergency exits are located and practice fire drills with your students so they know exactly where to go as well.
- Communicate with students and other teachers about safety issues.
- If you have any particular health problems or allergies, make sure that the teachers around you and the school administration are aware.
- Know the location of fire extinguishers and how to effectively use them.
- Never lift heavy objects that might be too much for you. Always ask for help.
- If you do lift something heavy, never lift with your back. Always lift with your legs.
- If you must reach something up high, never stand on the top of a ladder. Always find an appropriately sized ladder for the task.
Be aware of your surroundings
- Learn the signs of intensely aggressive behavior and watch for them in your students.
- If a fight breaks out among your students get help from the administration before getting involved.
- If you suspect a student might be planning something violent or aggressive contact your supervisor immediately and let the administration deal with the issue.
- Keep clutter and junk off of the floors to make sure there are no tripping hazards.
- Make sure students keep their belongings neat and organized instead of sprawled out on the floor obstructing walkways.
- Avoid direct contact with students who might be sick. If you think a student is ill, have them visit the school nurse as soon as possible.
- Don’t come to school if you are ill and possibly contagious. Schools are very close quarters where the illness is likely to spread fast.
- Exercise and eat well at home to keep you immune system ready for whatever the kids might bring with them to class.
