Several Warren County government employees are being honored for maintaining safe work environments.
Warren County had a safe year with 17 of its 23 departments making it through the entire year without a lost-time injury.
County safety coordinator David Britton conducts monthly safety meetings with all department managers, school system principals, and department representatives during which information is shared on ways to improve safety and prevent injuries.
“As each year comes to a close, most people take time to reflect on the past year – a review of things we have done well and things we need to improve on in the future,” said Britton. “Creating and maintaining a safe work environment is a top priority in all of our county departments and we are striving each day to be sure it continues. Working an entire year with no lost time is quite an achievement for any business.”
Departments lauded for no time lost include: airport, animal control, Bobby Ray Elementary, Centertown Elementary, Dibrell Elementary, Eastside Elementary, extended day care, Hickory Creek Elementary, highway department, Irving College School, maintenance, Morrison Elementary, sanitation, school system central office, Warren Academy, Warren County administration and Warren County Middle School.
