On the Road Again...With Loss Control Spring Workshops

The room was buzzing with conversation and energy as Public Works empoyees from the Alexandria area put their heads together to discuss some of their most important and dangerous jobs.  The question they were discussing?  "What are the top 10 city tasks you would lose sleep over if your 15 year old child would have to do them the next day without instruction?"  The buzz was happening at the LMCIT Spring Loss Control Workshops targeted specifically toward municipalities including Public Works employees.  In the afternoon City Clerks were buzzing over the question, "What Public Works tasks or emergency would make you cringe if it landed on your desk the day after your long term Public Works employee retired.....and all that knowledge walked out the door with them?"  Answers included, "I wouldn't want my son to do a confined space entry." and, somewhat agast, "I don't know what they (Public Works employees) really do!" 

Come join the buzz and get in on the conversation.  Next week we are in Marshall and Mankato.  We are traveling around the state.  Look for more dates, locations and information, along with how to register at the LMC website www.lmc.org.
