Let's Do Lunch!!
In-person meetings mean LUNCH!! We're happy to be working with local eateries to offer great lunches at each Ross County Safety Council meeting. Lunch will cost $12 each month.
To make things easier at sign in, you may purchase pre-paid LUNCH COUPON BOOKLETS, good for 12 lunches. You may also pay with credit/debit on the website when registering each month. You may also elect to pay on site and pay at sign in. The Safety Council will be equipped to accept credit/debit payments at the meeting.
Please email Wendi Bennett to request the lunch booklets.
We're Making a List, and Checking it Twice

Beginning with the July meeting, attendees will be required to sign in to get credit for attending the Safety Council meeting. Our Safety Council attendance is a key factor in the yearly subsidy and will keep Ross County in the running for the Best Safety Council award. I know, we're already the BEST, but we want others to know it too. Your signature is also how we track the premium rebate.
Mark your calendars for the PY 2022-2023

Safety in the Office
A safety article from Sedgwick
The office setting sure has changed over the past few years. Many of us are returning to the office full-time, others are working from home and some of us are working a hybrid schedule. No matter what our work schedule is we need to stay diligent about the office dangers lurking around the corner. Just because we were gone doesn’t mean the dangers are gone. Let’s review some of these hazards in the office setting.
