Coverages include but not limited to: workers’ compensation, property, auto and liability insurance. In 2017, the Supervisor of Safety & Environmental Services was awarded the Dr. Gary VanMeter Achievement Award for Risk Management Excellence

Certificate of Insurance (COI)

When it is necessary for an outside vendor to provide services on district property or district property is being used by an outside group, a COI must be provided in advance.  A COI is a statement of liability coverage for any activity or service that may cause, whether directly or indirectly, an injury, illness, or damage to property in connection with the outside group or a vendor or their services.  This may include for example utilizing district electrical or mechanical infrastructure or trainings and demonstrations that could ultimately cause injury or damage. Please see below the minimum requirements to be met if a COI is requested from a vendor or outside user group. You may find a complete list of the COIs already on file with the district by following the link posted below.
