Safety Assistance Programs provide participants in the Regional Safety Groups Initiative and the OSHA/Safety Assistance program with access to subsidized safety audits, one-on-one consulting, customized training, and free web-based training. LMCIT partners with the Minnesota Municipal Utilities Association (MMUA) to deliver these services.
- Safety Audits
Safety audits provide accurate feedback about your current level of safety management efforts. Through audits, your city receives strategic recommendations for improving workplace safety. Audits can also help you identify and establish reasonable safety goals. The cost for safety audits is shared equally between your city and LMCIT (costs vary). LMCIT will invoice your city for its share of the cost.
- One-on-One Consulting
Participating cities receive one hour of free consulting with qualified safety experts per safety issue. Experts can answer technical questions, give guidance on program development and implementation, expand on topics or clarify information covered at safety meetings, and provide general safety coaching. Contact MMUA safety experts at (800) 422-0119 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
