Central Kentucky Educational Cooperative Partners with PublicSchoolWORKS to Manage its Staff Safety Training and Compliance
PublicSchoolWORKS’ EmployeeSafe Suite will allow the cooperative to completely automate its training and compliance processes
Cincinnati, Ohio (October 14, 2019) — The Central Kentucky Educational Cooperative (CKEC) in Lexington, KY recently partnered with PublicSchoolWORKS, the number one provider of complete, online safety and regulatory compliance programs for K-12 schools, to manage its staff safety training and compliance. CKEC, which serves 22 school districts across central Kentucky, is using the PublicSchoolWORKS EmployeeSafe Suite Course Catalog and Custom Course Builder along with the Safety Document Library to deliver and manage safety training and compliance for its staff.
“Our staff works in our members’ schools and with students on a regular basis, so it is just as important for them to receive the same safety training that teachers receive,” said Dr. Dorothy Perkins, executive director of CKEC, which provides opportunities for collaboration, strategic planning, and professional development for its member districts. “Our goal is to always keep our staff safe and those they work with safe, and PublicSchoolWORKS’ comprehensive training resources will help us ensure this.”
EmployeeSafe provides schools and districts with access to 600+ online safety courses. This includes courses districts are required to deploy to employees, including Suicide Prevention, Restraint and Seclusion, and more, as well as courses on other important safety topics, including Slips, Trips, and Falls and Armed Assailant.
The program’s course customization tools convert district- or organization-specific information into courses that are delivered simultaneously with other training. And, the program’s Safety Document Library eliminates the need, cost, time, and effort for administrators to develop their own forms, documents, and written programs required to maintain compliance with federal, state, and local regulations.
“The personalization and automation aspects of EmployeeSafe were big for us,” said Perkins. “We’ll now be able to be more efficient with our operations, and be able to share our safety best practices and what we are learning with our members.”
Since 2000, PublicSchoolWORKS safety compliance management solutions have focused on helping schools easily meet ever-changing compliance requirements, improve staff and student safety, cut costs associated with risk, and reduce administrator and staff time and effort. PublicSchoolWORKS is the only, complete K12 safety compliance management program created by and for schools, and is proud to provide districts with award-winning technology and support recognized by North American educators.
