Safeguarding Resources for Coordinators and SRAs

Change Font Size:   A A A

The Safeguarding Records Administrator (SRA) is the organization’s primary user of the online Safeguarding Record System (SRS) that tracks the Safeguarding certification of adults. Trained by the Safeguarding Office, the SRA is responsible for entering individuals into the system and shepherding them through the certification application and screening process, including the interpretation of Background Checks. The Safeguarding Coordinator (SC) communicates Safeguarding requirements throughout the organization, reviews policy compliance, and monitors that the organization has sufficient SRAs and Trainers to support Safeguarding certification. See Forming a Safeguarding Team for a fuller description of the duties of the SRA and SC. Often, the duties of the SC are performed by the SRA of an organization, which is why the two roles are combined on this page.

Below are links to the information and resources that you will need to serve as an SRA and/or SC. If you have technical questions about SRS or policy questions, please contact a member of the EDOT Wellness and Care Safeguarding Team.
