NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE CITY OF NEOSHO, MISSOURI:

City of Neosho recognized for safe workplace practices

The City of Neosho was recognized Monday, August 19 for its safe workplace practices.

Representatives from Missouri Employers Mutual, the city's worker compensation insurance provider, presented the city a safety award for "outstanding dedication to workplace safety." Neosho was selected for the honor over all other MEM clients.

Within the last year or so, the city has rewritten its safety manual to incorporate new workplace safety policies, and is following up to ensure those policies are enforced. Jobsite and facility safety inspections are conducted, and it is verified that employees are wearing personal protective equipment and safety gear. Also, the city is also conducting safety training on everything from how to safely operate machinery to how to work safely out in the field.

Receiving Monday's award on behalf of the city was Neosho Human Resources Director Pam Baker and Neosho Safety Officer John Harrington. Harrington also serves as the City Inspector, Code Enforcement Officer and Stormwater Manager. Presenting the award from Missouri Employers Mutual was Rhonda Kauffman, senior loss prevention consultant, and Barbara Ingalsbe, senior claims representative.

Along with the award, Missouri Employers Mutual provided a gift basket full of tote bags and travel mugs for city staff.
