The Board expects the principal and department supervisors to undertake the administration of equipment.
Yearly inventories are required in all facilities. Discrepancies in inventory will be reported to the Director of Facilities and Maintenance in spring of each year.
- Loaning of School Equipment to Parties External to the District
It is not the District’s practice to lend equipment to parties external to the District. Circumstances may arise which would justify community use of specialized equipment. Subject to approval from the principal and or department supervisor, equipment may be loaned if used or operated by a competent worker as defined by the OH&S Code of Alberta (which requires suitable training, sufficient experience to safely operate, demonstrated competency to a competent worker, familiarity with equipment and operating instructions and is authorized)
In this case the equipment must be inspected before being loaned and after return to assure the equipment is safe and in good repair. Equipment that is not complete and in a safe and good state of repair shall not be loaned out and shall be decommissioned until repaired or disposed of.
- Loaning or Transferring Equipment from Facility to Facility
Equipment may be transferred permanently from one facility to another providing notification of the move is filed with the Director of Operations and Maintenance and providing inventories in each school have been changed accordingly. The transferred equipment must be inspected by both facilities to assure the equipment is safe and in good repair. Equipment must be complete and in a safe and good state of repair before transferred to another facility or shall be decommissioned until repaired or disposed of.
- Moving Equipment from School to School
Any new piece of equipment shall be inspected immediately by a person who is qualified to ascertain the completeness and safe working condition of the equipment.
If there are deficiencies or defects the receiver is to attempt to remedy the issues by working with the supplier and district purchaser.
