FCCUSD #265 SAFETY CREED

Moving forward, we will put forth a continual effort to create and sustain a safe and healthy workplace.
  • We will work safe and smart both at home and at work.
  • We will work to keep our building and work areas clean and organized.
  • We will have monthly safety talks.
  • We will work as a team to continually improve our work processes and safety program.
Here are just a few of the things that our Maintenance Department is doing to help make us a "green" campus!
  • Hard surfaces throughout the building are steamed to disinfect, instead of using harsh chemicals.
  • Pulper reduces footprint on items taken to the landfill.
  • Horticulture vinegar controls weeds.
  • Single-stream recycling is practiced throughout the District.
  • Parking lot lights were changed from multi-vapor to LED.
  • Gym lights were changed from multi-vapor to T5 high bay.
  • All AHU fans were put on VFD (variable frequency drives).
  • Parking lots were surfaced with GSB, an environmentally sensitive product that prolongs the life of the asphalt.
