To protect the assets of Frederick County from unnecessary and controllable losses by providing a safe workplace for our employees and eliminating hazards to the public on county property. The primary goal of Risk Management is to reduce losses and to control the cost of those which do occur. When identified, exposures are addressed through loss control techniques, training and education, and transfer of risk.
We accomplish our mission by:
- Responding to citizen reports of accidents or incidents that occur on county property or involve county employees or equipment.
- Procuring insurance to cover county projects and ensuring vendors the county works with have adequate coverage.
- Training employees in all aspects of workplace safety.
- Handling employee workers' compensation claims.
