(A) Ensuring the health and safety of all county employees is a major goal. It is the intent of the county to make every employee’s job safe in all respects; therefore, all employees shall report all hazardous conditions in their work area at once to their immediate supervisor.
(B) All work related injuries shall be reported to the employee’s supervisor immediately. Once the supervisor has been informed of the injury, the injured employee will be sent to the Human Resources Director to file a workers’ compensation claim, if needed.
(C) The county has a Safety Committee, which is made up of representatives from every agency within county government. The Committee shall meet on a quarterly basis and is charged with assisting in the safety training and safety awareness within the county’s work force. Any person who has concerns regarding safety can present concerns to his or her department head and to the Safety Committee representative for his or her department.
