The County's Safety and Loss Prevention
Program works to provide a safe environment for both County
employees and members of the public who visit County facilities
and receive County services. Safety staff strive to ensure
that all state and federal requirements are met or exceeded.
This program provides specific training for County employees
in such diverse topics as Ergonomics in the Workplace,
Defensive Driving, CPR and First Aid, and Forklift Training.
The Safety staff train departmental Safety Representatives
who assist in maintaining safety standards and implementing
safety programs in all County departments.
The Safety Staff in the Office of Risk Management also
provide corporate safety oversight, policy development,
and support services. Among those support services are
consultations and provision of publications, training
materials and educational videos to County departments
for internal training.
