Safety Program


Safety Program Cuyahoga County maintains a comprehensive Safety Program predicated upon sound engineering, training and education.  The County provides safe working conditions for all its employees and makes available, where necessary, special equipment for the prevention of accidents and personal injuries. 


The responsibility for safety in the County extends through the entire management team to every employee on the job.  The prevention of accidents and injuries requires that each employee accepts full share of the responsibility for safety.  It is the responsibility of management to maintain a sound program.  Each employee shall comply with safety and health standards and all rules and regulations which are acceptable to his own actions and conduct. 

The Safety Committees throughout the County act in an advisory capacity on all safety and fire protection matters.  It is responsible for the establishment of County safety objectives and for guiding and assisting all agencies or departments relative to their safety practices.
