101 KAR 2:150 established the State Safety Program within the Personnel Cabinet. The Office of Employee Relations manages the Safety Program along with the Workers’ Compensation and Return-to-Work programs.
The mission of the State Safety Program is to promote a safe and healthy workplace for state employees and others in the state workers’ compensation fund by providing training, education, information, coordination, and assistance in the areas of workplace health and safety, loss prevention, and risk management.
The Executive Safety Advisory Committee was created in June 2005 as a result of Executive Order 2006-567 (PDF-97KB). One or more representatives from each major cabinet or agency of state government meet monthly to promote safety among state employees. The purpose of the committee is to engage statewide governmental services in strategic planning to develop and promote a workplace safety program designed to reduce the number of work-related accidents and illnesses.
In order to promote the safety and health of all Commonwealth employees, the Executive Safety Advisory Committee has instituted the ESAC Award. This award will recognize those Cabinets, Departments, Divisions or equivalent of the Executive Branch that achieve 12 months of work without experiencing a lost time injury. The award is designed to support all programs that intend to reduce occupational injuries.
Personnel Cabinet Secretary Tim Longmeyer presented the 2011 safety awards at the June ESAC meeting. Winning cabinets received plaques acknowledging their commitment to planning, developing and promoting workplace safety and certificates were presented to departments, divisions and offices with no lost time injuries.
