To whom it may concern:
The Sandy City Public Works Department currently has an outstanding safety program. As a matter of fact, the department has gone over 600,000 hours since its last lost time workplace injury. Since we have been very successful, most people would think that a safety inspection from an outside entity would be a waste of time. On the contrary, our greatest fear is that a sense of complacency would develop and bad habits would be brought into the workplace. Since no person or organization is perfect, we wanted to have an inspection of our workplace to confirm that we were doing things right and to correct those problems that may have been overlooked by supervisors. The UOSH Public Sector Consultation Service proved to be the perfect solution for our concerns. After an initial meeting with the consultant and supervisory staff, a thorough inspection of the entire workplace ensued. The consultant was friendly and fair. She clearly identified problems and helped supervisors understand how to safely resolve the issue. This free service will continue to help Sandy City Public Works protect our employees and keep our safety costs low.
