DES Monthly Safety Message

The DES Monthly Safety Message is a safety newsletter for the Division of Environmental Services. Its purpose is to promote occupational safety and health and to inform readers of the purpose, plans and progress of the Department of Water Resources Safety Program.

The newsletter will include information about accidents and incidents, safety bulletins, safety studies, training materials, safety audits, and other safety related information.

DES management is responsible for developing and organizing the workplace safety program which will outline the policies and procedures regarding employee health and safety.

Once completed, each and every individual must become familiar with the program, follow and enforce the procedures, and become an active participant in this workplace safety program.

While management (the workplace safety officer and workplace safety committee) will be responsible for developing and organizing this program, its success will depend on the involvement of each employee.

One way to become an active participant is to notify your supervisor immediately of any safety concerns; consider safety in all areas, not just job tasks; and offer suggestions to improve the program to any of the workplace safety committee members.

I look forward to your cooperation and participation. Thanks.

Dean Messer, Chief
Division of Environmental Services
