Safety & Loss Control Workshops

Each spring, LMCIT holds a series of one-day workshops at locations throughout the state. These sessions focus on providing practical information for cities to help avoid losses and reduce the costs of losses that may occur. Several tracks are offered for various staff, including public works, fire, peace officers, administration, elected officials, and parks and recreation. These workshops are inexpensive and registration fees include informational materials from all the sessions.

Specialized Loss Control Workshops

Half-day workshops are offered at various locations annually in the Fall on topics such as confined space entry; street, snow-plowing, and sewer maintenance policies; trenching; and chainsaw usage. Depending upon the topic, participants will participate in hands-on simulations, learn about OSHA standards and requirement, and receive sample policies and models, and more.
