 Very Brief Surveys To Keep Us in the Loop

These surveys are for the use of the OT Union Local.

Board Forms should be completed first and should be submitted to your administration.

Classroom Evacuations – In some work sites especially, we are hearing that classroom evacuations are too frequent of an occurrence. There are no mechanisms, however, to track these situations so we’ve created a reporting form which will take you less than two minutes to complete. We think it is dysfunctional for classroom evacuations to be happening – certainly on a regular basis and we want to assist you. We need you to complete this survey so that we can.

Classroom Evacuation Survey

 

Filled out a Safe Schools Incident Report?  You are not allowed to make a copy of this form, however it is recommended that you keep detailed notes for your personal records regarding the incident. Compete the Safe Schools Survey. Completing this survey will take less than 1 minute. Generally, we want to know, how often the incidents are occurring.
