NJEA Health & Safety Manual

NJEA members have a legal right to safe and healthful working conditions. Your board of education is responsible for ensuring that school employees and students are not exposed to hazardous conditions.

NJEA and the New Jersey Work Environment Council (WEC) are working in partnership to protect NJEA members from unsafe schools. Together, we created the NJEA Health & Safety Manual to provide locals with a comprehensive collection of health and safety resources.

The following links provide general and specialized resources to aid in identifying and resolving workplace health and safety problems. For additional information, job specific brochures, and training, call your UniServ Office.
