Lee County to Update Safety Plan
Lee County could update a policy that affects every one of its employees.
Safety Coordinator BJ Stephens says she would like to do a complete re-write of the county’s safety plan. She says it would cover every aspect of county government by creating a streamlined approach to handling issues that multiple departments must address.
Board of Supervisors Chairperson Janet Fife-LaFrenz says the goal is “to make our environment that our people work in and our residents come in to visit a very safe one.”
Fife-LaFrenz says a consolidated plan could also reduce the number of worker compensation claims.
Stephens says it could take months to complete the re-write.
The first step is for the Board of Supervisors to adopt a mission statement.
