All employees have the right to a safe working environment. The safety and well-being of our employees is very important, and to safeguard employee safety, the City’s mission is to identify and eliminate employee exposures to avoidable hazards and conditions that can lead to injury, illness or fatal accidents. Parallel to this undertaking, the City has adopted an Employee Safety Compliance Program to comply with federal and state regulations, laws and statutes designed to help maintain a safe and healthful workplace.
To further minimize such risk, we need your personal commitment as well. Maintaining a safe workplace is a shared responsibility. Safety requires the active participation of upper management, supervisors and employees. No one individual or group can do the job alone. It is incumbent upon each of us to serve as a good role model to co-workers for safe work practices and behavior. All employees are encouraged to remain alert and correct hazardous conditions and unsafe acts – if it is safe to do so – and/or report them to their supervisors.
If your reporting of unsafe conditions does not result in ensuring a safe working environment, please contact us. We are here to help. Your information will be kept confidential.
