SAFETY AND ERGONOMICS

Safety Division Ergonomics Division

County of Monterey Safety Mission Statement

"It is the policy of the County of Monterey to make certain that all aspects of our operation are conducted in the safest manner possible. Safety is the number one priority, uncompromised by scheduling constraints, weather, and deadlines.
Our policy provides for a safe and healthy workplace for all employees. All employees shall not only be current on training as it applies to their particular task, but shall have a full understanding of why certain precautions must be taken when working in a given environment. We firmly contend that the health and welfare of our employees is of the utmost importance.

Each project must be continuously examined and re-examined for hazard identification and preventive measures to minimize potential for injury. Our expectation is that all employees from the management team on down will continue to contribute to the evolving safety program pertaining to each project. We expect every individual employed by the County of Monterey to uphold the workplace standards set forth by Cal/OSHA, OSHA, local codes as well as those further put in place by the County.

We believe in a ‘top-down’ approach to safety such that it begins with the management team. The management team believes that accident prevention is the cornerstone of the safety program. Additionally, each supervisor is responsible for the safety of their teams, each team leader is responsible for each team, and each member of the team is responsible for their own safety and the safety of those around them. The result is an accident-free environment where employees know that their well-being is the number one priority of the County."
