Hidden CRASIF Treasurers
- April 17, 2017
Attendees at the 49th Annual Commisioner’s Seminar on April 10-11, 2017 in Bay City were enriched by a session called “Discovering Hidden CRASIF Treasurers.” The session guided the attendees through the treasurer-trove of safety resources available through the CRASIF website and our partnership with Safetysurance. Director of Risk Consulting, Allen Roden, highlighted certain gems such as regular news feeds on workplace injuries and 24/7 access to safety training videos on operational hazards. He also informed those in attendance that road commission staff are being trained on how to use the system when our risk consultants make their on-site visits. Road commissioners were encouraged to make sure their road commission knew of the resources if they are a member of CRASIF.
