The Corvallis Montessori School here in town (next door to the North co-op) are looking for a community member to sit on our workplace safety committee.

Responsibilities include:

  • Attending a short meeting each month (15 to 30 minutes) to review any concerns raised by staff about workplace safety.
  • 4 safety walk-throughs to complete a facility safety checklist (roughly 1 hour each, September, December, March, and June).
