The Texas Water Conservation Association Risk Management Fund (TWCARMF) is hosting, at no cost to its Members, a safety seminar to provide practical solutions to reduce accidents, injuries, and resulting losses. Safety is serious business for Texas water districts and authorities. This one-day seminar will cover current safety issues and provide guidance for managing your safety programs. Seminar topics include:
Current TWCARMF Claims Trends
An in-depth review of TWCARMF’s last five years of claims experience. We will identify the most common accident types and discuss best practices the Members can implement to control their own claims costs.
Motor vehicle accidents rank as one of the top three accident types within the TWCARMF. We will discuss best practices employees can use to keep themselves safe when behind the wheel.
Lockout/Tagout related injuries and deaths can be prevented. We will discuss the importance of lockout/tagout procedures and safeguards Members can implement to ensure dangerous machinery and energy sources are properly shut off and are not re-started while maintenance or service work is being completed.
Strains, Sprains, and Ergonomics
Some of the most common and serious injuries are caused by not focusing on the relationship between what we do and how we do it. We will help bring clarity to this relationship in order to reduce these types of injuries.
This seminar is designed for all water district or authority personnel with safety responsibilities including safety or risk management staff, project managers, management, and supervisory personnel Non-members are not eligible to attend.
The seminar will be conducted at the Tropical Behavioral Health Training Center, 2215 W. Business 83, Weslaco, Texas 78596.
