Safety and Student Code of Conduct Policies

Policy:

Acadia College is committed to providing a safe environment for students, instructors and employees.  Acadia College makes every effort to ensuring all machinery and equipment are properly maintained and any required safety devices are in working order.  Any concerns or issues must be reported to Chief Executive Officer and Senior Educational Administrator.

 

Procedure:

Flight training safety is the primary focus of Acadia College’s activities, policies and procedures.  With respect to the ground operations, and in particular the use of offices and classrooms, Acadia College is committed to providing a healthy and safe, working and learning environment for all employees and students.  The policy applies to all Acadia College employees and students.

The Workplace Safety Officer is responsible to ensure the staff and facilities are properly prepared to respond to threats to safety at Acadia College.  These threats included the following:

  1. Ineffective Safety Reporting – Acadia College’s anonymous safety reporting system could malfunction or become ineffective.
  2. Fire – facilities fire warning and response, including school evacuation.
  3. Aircraft Deicing – including safe handling and procedures for Isopropyl Alcohol (commonly referred to as rubbing alcohol, pronounced Isopropyl and also referred to as isopropanol alcohol)

Policies and procedures are in place to mitigate the risks associated with these threats to safety, including initial and recurrent staff training, as well as, monthly inspections of grounds facilities.
