New Health and Safety Policy

I am pleased to announce that our Town now has a health and safety policy for our employees. This policy will help shape the culture of our workplace and enhance the well-being of Town employees by helping all of us be more aware of our surroundings and the importance of individual and group safety. Our goal: a healthier and safer work environment. Doing this also has a financial payback: the Town currently spends approximately $420,000 annually in health/safety-related costs and I am envisioning this to drop noticeably over the next few years as our accident rate drops. This is an active program, not just a piece of paper. If you have questions on this, you’re always welcome to contact me. The policy may be viewed here.
