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.
