Risk Management
  • Responsibilities and Services
    Risk Management is responsible for protecting the County's assets from the risk of accidental losses and injuries. The primary functions are to develop, promote, and track safety programs that meet or exceed OSHA regulations, evaluate risk, procure insurance policies and administer workers' compensation, property, general liability and automobile claims.

    In addition, Risk Management fosters a culture of safety through employee training, monthly safety review and quarterly safety committee meetings that involve all departments in the commitment to ensure a safe environment for all employees, as well as the citizens who visit the County's facilities daily.


Winter Driving Safety Tips

Winter has arrived in Calvert County bringing with it cold air, blustery winds, and of course the promise of snow and ice. Driving in wintery conditions can be challenging, but taking a moment to refresh your memory of winter driving tips can help ensure your safety when you venture out on the roads.

  1. Remove ALL snow and ice from your vehicle.
  2. Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage.
  3. Keep your gas tank at least half-full to avoid gas line freeze-up.
  4. Ensure your tires are properly inflated.
  5. Do not assume that a four-wheel drive vehicle is skid-proof.
  6. Drive slower than normal.
  7. Increase your following distance.
  8. Stay with your vehicle if you become stranded. Ensure the exhaust pipe is not blocked by snow while running the vehicle.
  9. Pack a winter safety kit to keep in your car.
  10. Do not take unnecessary risks. In extreme conditions, choose to stay off the roads.
