What's the goal?

Continued reductions in workplace injuries! Between 2012 and 2014 state agencies reduced workplace injuries by 23 percent. Looking forward, we will reduce injuries 5 percent annually over the next 4 years. How do we do that?

  • Establishing annual safety and loss control goals.
  • Reviewing injury data quarterly to assess progress toward goals.
  • Communicating our safety commitment to our employees and stakeholders.
  • Making safety and loss control part of our daily operations.
  • Providing resources to support safety and loss control goals.
  • Incorporating safety measurements into how we measure our effectiveness.

Governor Dayton's charge:

  • State government will actively promote the safety and health of all while conducting its work.
  • All employees will be personally responsible and accountable for workplace safety.
  • All employees will ensure a safe workplace and reduce losses associated with accidents and injuries.
