What is MnSAFE?
MnSAFE is the statewide workplace safety initiative for employees of the state of Minnesota. Governor Mark Dayton has challenged all state employees to reduce the rate of workplace injuries. We can only achieve that if we truly embrace a safety culture in all of our workplaces.
Did you know?
Over 1900 injuries will occur in the state workforce this fiscal year according to current projections. We owe it to our colleagues, and to their families and friends, to make an effort everyday to prevent those injuries from happening. In order to do that, we can start by recognizing the scope of the issue.
Our Shared Commitment
It's our mission to achieve a 25 percent reduction in the rate of workplace injuries within the next three years. How do we do it? By establishing annual safety goals, grading ourselves quarterly to assess progress, and by utilizing shared resources to support safe workplaces.
