The mission of the Saline County Safety Committee is to promote a safe working environment for each employee, and to the visiting public, while rendering high quality service. This can only be accomplished through the reduction and prevention of occupational injuries and illnesses, as well as promoting safety practices and positive attitudes in each County department and facility. The Committee will work diligently to assure that appropriate mechanical and physical safety devices are available, along with recommended training to maintain a safe environment.

The Committee will review existing County policies and assist departments in development of policies and procedures when necessary, as well as review accidents which occur. It will also make recommendations to the County Board and others regarding ways to promote a safe working environment for each County employee and all those making use of our governmental services and facilities.

  • To conduct an ongoing systematic review of safety and security conditions throughout Saline County Government

  • To promote safety through safety education/training program for all employees
  • To promote compliance with federal/state regulations and industry standards regarding health and safety
