Improving the safety of the Yuma County workplace requires the active support and participation of all employees.

Because of the size of the County workforce and the vast area over which employees and assets are distributed, each County department has a designated Safety Officer who is responsible for monitoring the working conditions in his or her department, encouraging their fellow employees to work in a safe manner, notifying the appropriate supervisor of any unsafe conditions, processes, and/or behaviors in their department, and for making reports and recommendations at the annual meeting of the Safety Committee.

Once each year, all Safety Officers meet as a committee to discuss safety issues in the County workplace and to share ideas on improving working conditions and processes. This annual meeting is permanently chaired by the County's Risk Director.

The Safety Officers and their respective departments are as follows:

Safety Officer Department
Victoria Clarkson Assessor
Dunia Federico Administration/Board of Supervisors/Elections
Mary Martinez Constable
Delores Smith  County Attorney
Pat Headington Development Services
David Rico General Services
LeeAnne Rachels Financial Services
