Get Schooled on Safety

Kids in classroom raising hand

Schools are arguably the most important workplaces to ensure health and safety and can be the most challenging. Schools need to track, prevent, and mitigate a wide range of incidents from cyberbullying to bomb threats.

They need to manage and properly store a variety of chemicals used for cleaning, art, science, and more. They need to prevent and manage accidents and injuries to employees, students, and visitors. They also must train their staff on a number of topics as diverse as Emergency Management, Nutritional Services, Security & Cyber Security, Social & Behavioral Issues, Special Education, Transportation, and more.

School staff, teachers, and administration deserve both tremendous respect and all the support they can get. MEMIC takes our work with schools very seriously, so we have partnered with Scenario Learning, a leading developer of award-winning school safety and compliance training programs focused on schools. Every school we insure has free access to the SafeSchools Learning Management System. MEMIC policyholders can find out more by registering for a February 8, 2018 SafeSchools webinar. Contact Christine Collomy with your organization name, MEMIC policy number, contact name, phone, and email address.
