Augusta, Georgia adopted the Safety / Risk Management Manual which has now been incorporated into the Employee Handbook. The Safety Policy is for use by all departments and is intended to enhance each department's standard operating procedures.
There are designated safety officers (currently an additional duty for a current position within a department) assigned by the department director to assist Risk Management in the safe operation of each area.
Duties of these officers include but not limited to:
- Investigating accidents
- Reporting unsafe conditions with corrective measures, if known
- Holding monthly safety meetings
