At the State of Colorado, the personal safety of our employees is more than a priority, it is part of our philosophy. No one goes to work expecting to be injured and, for us, no work injury is acceptable. That is why the State Office of Risk Management is 100% committed to training state employees in the best work practices that will help them identify, mitigate, and manage the hazards they face, no matter what kind of environment they work in or what kind of authority they have.
Not all injuries are immediately avoidable, but in the long-term most are preventable. Call us optimists, but with planning, practice, and consideration for the well-being of our workforce, we are confident we can reduce workplace injury and get our people home safe each and every day.
