Anne Arundel County Employees See Sharp Drop in Loss Time Injuries

Annapolis, MD (February 6, 2006)- Anne Arundel County Executive Janet S. Owens announced a 42% reduction in lost time injuries for County employees over the past three years. There has also been a 22% reduction in days lost due to injuries and a 38% reduction in OSHA Reportable injuries, which are injuries that require time away from work, or medical treatment beyond first aide.

"I am pleased that our risk management efforts are resulting in fewer injuries and a healthier workforce. Fewer claims also result in a stronger self-insurance fund and savings to the taxpayers in the long-run said," Ms. Owens.

The breakdown in reduction of loss time, days lost and OSHA Reportable cases is as follows:
