Cheers to Peers
Welcome back to our Cheers to Peers column – a space to recognize some of the excellent work being done in our member districts. More “cheers” to Issaquah School District’s Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Group.
PSWCT Industrial Hygienist, Elizabeth Jakab alerted us to a new “Share the Air” poster developed by Julius Carter and the Issaquah School District’s IEQ Committee partially inspired by Nancy Bernard and Washington State’s “Healthy Air for Healthy Schools” initiative. We’re linking both posters for your reference.
Clever work from dedicated professionals!
We appreciate Nancy P. Bernard, MPH, REHS, CPSI, Program Manager, School Environmental Public Health Division, Washington State Department of Health for her work on this project!
An RTW Kudo Award goes to Mukilteo School District. They created three light duty positions that support the entire district!
- Touch Point Cleaning – allowing flexibility, duties can be as broad or as detailed as the worker’s restrictions require.
- Print Shop Helper – supporting the in-house publications department with a variety of stationary work.
- Science Kit Position – creating counting and other science-oriented packets to support K-8 science and math curriculum.
These positions allow 5 – 10 people to return to work in a light duty capacity and the district can meet injured workers where they are in their recovery.
This is good for the district and great motivation for the injured worker because it acknowledges their importance and value to the district.
