Dallas ISD is the only school district in Texas to win a 2017 National Safety Council Our Driving Concern Texas Employer Traffic Safety Award for emphasizing traffic safety.
The district’s Risk Management Services is one of 15 Texas employers to be recognized this year, and it is being awarded an Exemplary award for its commitment to protecting employees on the road.
Employee education, training and other activities centered on traffic safety were considered in determining the award recipients. The Exemplary award is the top one in the program, and Dallas ISD is one of only four entities, among cities and companies, to win it for 2017.
The district will be honored along with other winners next month at the National Safety Council Texas Safety Conference & Expo in Fort Worth.
Dallas ISD’s Risk Management Services, a division of Financial Services, is responsible for the identification, evaluation, treatment, and monitoring of the District’s operational risks. The risk management program was established in 1990, and continues to provide risk management services for an urban school district of approximately 20,000 employees, 157,0000 students, and 300 district facilities.
