OSHA/Safety Committee

The Risk Management Department ensures that all County employees are provided a safe and healthful work environment as required by the General Duty Clause from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other pertinent regulations as mandated by OSHA.

The Safety Coordinator in each department reports violations to the concerned department head for corrective action and, if necessary, can report any hazard violation and recommend corrective action directly to the County Supervisors Office.

A Safety Committee, comprised of supervisors and employees representing a cross section of County departments, meets quarterly and assists this office in developing policy and identifying and resolving unsafe working condition.
