Safety and Loss Prevention Program

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.
