Nov 10,2020: Expired Work Boot Vouchers

We’re hearing that many Members forgot about their work boot vouchers & allowed them to expire last week. If you find yourself in this situation, contact your supervisor about getting a replacement voucher. Remember, there are certain duties that require you to wear certified safety footwear. As the District has provided them to you at their cost, do not make the mistake of choosing to not wear them in the performance of these duties. It is your responsibility to utilize the items that are provided to make your job safer.

 

Oct 1,2020: Work Boot Voucher

Your yearly CCSD 2020 work boot voucher should have arrived via your District email this week.

Your voucher can ONLY be used for CSA approved safety footwear at the approved vendor. There is a maximum dollar amount (depending on your position’s needs) but you can spend whatever you want to get what you like, as long as you pay the difference. Your voucher EXPIRES NOVEMBER 6, 2020.

There are specific tasks during which you are required to wear your safety footwear. Consider keeping them in your vehicle or at your worksite so that they are available when you need them.

If you did not receive your voucher, contact your supervisor.
