1.9.2015

Do you look around your workplace every day and see the potential for accidents? Do you go out of your way to make sure you and your co-workers stay safe? Then speak up and be a Hazard Hero!

During his 2014 State of the State address, Gov. Pat McCrory announced one of his top priorities would be reducing the state’s high number of workplace injuries, which in January 2013 averaged 12,000 a year, and the high cost of worker’s compensation claims, which had reached $140 million a year.

Now, says John Bogner, director of the state Office of Human Resources Division of Safety, Health & Workers’ Compensation, they want to get employees in every state agency, every cabinet department and every university, community college and school system even more involved in the effort.
