The best time to incorporate Safety into a new facility and/or modernization project is during the planning and design phase, as it may save districts money by minimizing costly design changes after-the-fact, preventing employee injuries and enhancing the functional work environment. CCCSIG can assist as follows: 1. Participate in the planning and design meetings. 2. Review district facility design and/or equipment standards and provide recommendations. 3. Provide a Safety by Design Checklist for districts to use in the planning and design meetings (checklist available on the Health & Safety Services page of this website).
