Safety and Loss Management

Safety and Loss Management is committed to a culture that integrates safety into everything we do.  The Public Works Executive Team has recognized Safety as a Core Value for our department.  Our goal is to identify departmental safety needs based upon employee exposure to risk.  This allows us to mitigate or eliminate hazards before they become a safety issue and to define accountability and link responsibilities to consequences. Safety is a shared responsibility that employees must take ownership of in the performance of their duties.  Employees are also encouraged to take ownership of the safety of their co-workers.  Together as a team, we inspire active employee involvement to achieve quality and excellence through continual improvement of all of our safety programs and services.   People are our most important asset – their safety is our greatest responsibility.
